I recently concluded an in-depth case study on the machine tool industry with Oberon Dixon-Luinenburg. We just published two summaries of our research.
- Machine Tools: A Case Study In Advanced Manufacturing, with Bismarck Analysis. This report covers where machine tools are built, why they’re built in those places, and what this tells us about industrial policy more broadly.
- How State Capacity Drives Industrialization, with Palladium. This article describes the history of industrialization, and why it doesn’t happen without guidance from the state.
