Foreign competition, hostile takeovers, new technologies and a host of other factors have caused dramatic changes in this key sector of the American economy. Many obÂ servers of this process of change are singing the "rust belt blues," consigning U.S. manufacturing greatness to the history books. In April 1986, the Center for the Study of American Business at Washington University issued a study by its director, Dr. Murray L. Weidenbaum, which challenged this perception of American manuÂ facturing's future. The report, entitled Learning to Compete, pointed to a variety of positive developments resulting from the adÂ versity faced by American firms in the first half of the decade: proÂ ducers had improved quality and productivity, reduced costs, and inÂ creased emphasis on R&D.
