Welcome to Third Eye Weekly. On this podcast we try and answer the big questions with intimate, personal narratives that give insight into the human experience that others might over-look.
Today’s podcast is about the good ole U-S-of-A. We take a lot of pride in the country that we live in, as we should, but many are critical about the lack of homefront-based resourcing and goods.
Our question for this week is: Can we go about producing more within the borders of our country, or is sourcing labor, products, and services from other countries part of an inevitable economy and future?
We’ll talk with Steven Barrison, Executive Vice President and Spokesperson for the Small Business Congress.
We’ll also chat with Bronx Councilwoman Annabel Palma, who introduced in June 2014 The Small Business Jobs Survival Act in the City Council.
Lastly, for our Third Eye perspective into the question this week we’ll wrap it up by talking with Willy Shih, professor of management practice, Harvard Business School’s technology and operations management unit.
