Synopsis >

Contrary to recent widely held beliefs, America is actually the number one manufacturing nation on earth. Yul Kwon meets the men and women who create the world’s best and most iconic products; engineers who are reinventing the American auto industry; steelworkers who brave intense heat to accommodate radical new ideas about recycling; and engineers who are re-imagining the microchip. Yul further explores the emerging notion that manufacturing itself is changing from a system based on the movement and assembly of raw materials like steel and plastic to a system in which ideas and information are the raw materials of a new economy based around communications and social connections via companies like Facebook and Google.
