In this video, the Council on Competitiveness celebrates their 25th anniversary.
The Council on Competitiveness was founded in 1986 during a time when the United States was facing its most dire economic challenges since the end of World War II. The country had slid from being the world’s largest creditor to its largest debtor, its position as a global leader in technology and innovation was declining and American industries were losing market share to international competitors. To meet these mounting challenges, two-dozen industrial, university, and labor leaders joined together to found the Council, a forum for elevating national competitiveness to the forefront of national consciousness.
For people wanting to advocate HPC, the Council site has a good number of case studies available for download.
