Education From Manufacturing Industry History

Dr. Pietro Savo - American Writer

Christopher Musselwhite (1990) identified the need for business to define a process that encourages best capabilities and practices to ensure business success. The focus of the organization’s leaders is to develop new leaders through early involvement of engineering teams. This means that leaders need to define practices that encourage people to learn, share ideas, and achieve their greatest potential (Musselwhite, 1990). Equally important is for the manufacturing organization to develop training programs that internally create career paths that cultivate and grow its own qualified workforce. This was a lesson identified during the Industrial Revolution of the 1830s. Business limitations and possible failures occur by not investing in modern equipment and human capital. Businesses that do not develop strategies to keep pace with, or stay ahead of new technologies fall short in advancing business markets. The result is lost business market competitiveness, jobs, and the loss of historical knowledge.

leaders need to define practices that encourage people to learn, share ideas, and achieve their greatest potential

The concept of education from manufacturing history encourages a broad-minded knowledge base focused on learning from history to encourage manufacturing process research and training as a strategic means to keep pace with market changes. According to Witzel (2007), the existing literature and actual field experiences from manufacturing lessons, first identified 160 years ago, clearly identify that the U.S. failed to learn from history the need for continued training, which resulted in lost market knowledge and jobs. Companies generally invested in technology and human capital when the business performance is positive and cash is available, not when the need was greatest.

History does repeat itself when the lessons learned are not heeded. Charles Babbage was a British inventor and mathematician credited with inventing the digital computer in the 1800’s. Babbage, educated in Great Britain and a profound thinker, often spoke about the economic perils associated with not investing in manufacturing, design research, and human education. Great Britain ignored Babbage’s insight by not investing, while the emerging economic rivals, the U.S. and Germany, did. The result was that Great Britain wasted their progressive knowledge and lost its global market superiority. Britain’s failure, forecasted by Babbage, occurred because they failed to learn from history. The U.S. repeated this failure by not learning from its history (Howell, 2006), which permitted the negative grip of a poor economy and high unemployment to take hold.

we need Free Trade Agreements (FTA) with United States best interest in mind! FTA that provides the United States manufacturing industry an equal playing field

In the last 50 years, the U.S. poor economy and high unemployment resulted from a combination of factors, such as free trade agreements (FTA), which included government policy changes that affected manufacturing, Currently, the U.S. has FTAs with 15 countries: Australia, Bahrain, Canada, Chile, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Israel, Jordan, Mexico, Morocco, Nicaragua Oman, Peru, and Singapore. The seminal research by Robert Scott (2001), while engaged in writing for the Economic Policy Institute, addressed why FTA core principles better supported the 50 years of the strategic industrial growth policies of Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Malaysia, and China than the U.S. The Asian model simply protected their industries by investing heavily in manufacturing process research, employee education, and subsidizing R&D investment. This strategic industrial growth policy represented the complete opposite of what occurred in the U.S.

The problem is that the U.S. failed to learn lessons from their past pertaining to protecting manufacturing industries, and consequently lost important knowledge and market share. Here we are again, high unemployment, poor unprepared economy, in and modern age of technologic wonder and the U.S. is unprepared, unfocused, and failing to thrive resulting lost its global market superiority…

“Immigrants” An American Heritage

Originally Published December 20th, 2009
American Writer Pietro Savo

My parents immigrated to the United States over 50 years ago not looking for free handouts. What they were looking for was learning to speak English, earning a better life, and contributing to the American Dream. My parents proud of their heritage, which today includes becoming woven into the great United States Community Fabric call “Americans.”

A lesson they always taught, leave the world much better than you find it, treat everyone with respect, and contribute more then you take. Be fair to those who do not respect you in return and especially those who do not believe in the American Dream. Because your relentless faith will cause them to finally understand the true importance of America, because it is hard to argue with passion empowered by the love of a new country and common sense.

Mostly they would say, do not let anyone hold you back!   My parents raised four children with English as their primary language, now English is part of all our heritages as well!

THE INGREDIENTS OF INSPIRATION, Is the time and wisdom of people who desire to build bridges across all language boundaries. This wisdom begins with faith in the American Dream and continues for generations to come…

the Few & the Many

Dr. Pietro Savo - American Writer The wisdom of the over educated perceived experts is what I call the few is not as productive as what I call the rest of us the many. For the record, the many are powered by our community’s survival skills. The few cannot hope to make best policy for the many. The few can only hope to learn from the many’ s lessons not yet written in any book. The many that begin the day with less, and make do with less, these are people well worth learning from.

The many are the Engines of Progress; the true enterprising people; the true shakers and movers of society; the true believers that the impossible is always possible.

Society (community) is an amazing unwritten book. The smart few that do pay close attention to the many; base their learning in historical experiences and derive comparisons to modern-day experiences. The few who work and live among the many are more productive. These few are closer to the reality and can quickly help the many capitalize even greater on the successes that come from necessity of daily survival.

The secret formula for success comes from studying the many’ s survival skills and identifying what are the successful strategies, then duplicate and share these strategies with the entire community.

The smart few will deploy and share this understanding with everyone they come in contact with. The truest smart few will focus on the value to the many over the value to self…

Societies’ big picture we need the smart few because they help the many witness the value in their own identity.

A Very Small Ratio of Selfish 1% Are Giving The 1% a Bad Name!

Dr. Pietro Savo - American Writer

We are passionately focused on a spectacular opportunity to show how the very small ratio of selfish 1% takes advantage of the other 99%ers.

The 99%ers feel the impact of the ‘economic slowdown and unemployment, and being robbed while also struggling daily against all other kinds of great odds.

“There are some successes that money can’t force or control; successes that are commissioned while doing the right thing for those that have unselfishly made the sacrifices to ensure freedoms to live, to enjoy the true value of God given right of the existence of the United states of American.” 

The 1% that President Obama has identified, as the cause of the mayhem, perhaps there is some truth to this phenomena. I do not totally agree with the president because all people can be divided into in two mindsets (1) selfish and (2) unselfish.

“In my understanding, a small percentage of selfish 1% is giving the private sector a bad name, and here we are battling to protect the unselfish American Citizens.”

“No Noble Quest is Fruitless”

This small percentage of selfish greedy 1%, their true religion is making money at everyone else’s expense.

Please join me on my weekly radio show dedicated to help defend American small businesses, service members, veterans and their families by given the unselfish people a positive voice in the court of public opinion using the infinite power of social networking, social media and the American Spirit to remain Free!

If you are a 99er who has been beat up by a selfish 1% and their expensive lawyers, I would love to hear your story… Please post your story here or send me an e-mail at PietroSavo@AmericanWriter.US

“A constitutional republic is not a polite and pretty entity; it can become fearful for the light-at-heart. When we stop arguing, when the rhetoric becomes one-sided, when any side is no longer willing to question, we achieve pure submission. Submission does not work in a constitutional republic; submission is not liberty nor is it being free. What does this all mean, there is no real republic without passionate rhetoric!” Dr. Pietro Savo 2010

“Very smart people have discovered methods to best utilize the Internet for sharing information, bridging across all cultural boundaries, and building relationships (Network) anywhere in the planet at the speed of electrons.” Dr. Pietro Savo 2011
