Reshore - A critical view from China and the USA with Dr. Eamon McKinney and Harry Moser
The podcast gives an objective discussion by China Manufacturing expert Dr. Eamon McKinney and US based reshoring champion Harry Moser. The view from China by Dr. McKinney who is a renown sinologist will give you a rarely discussed understanding of how the Chinese are actively decoupling from the US, Canada and other allied countries, so are in many cases forcing North American companies to reconsider their supply chain strategy. Harry Moser is the President of reshorenow.org who gives the background to their initiative, what tools are available to help companies with their TCO decision making process and how companies are accelerating their reshore and near-shoring efforts to avoid additional supply chain disruption.
