Since the founding of our country, manufacturing has always been a cornerstone of our economy.

Americans are, on average, wealthier, healthier, and better-educated than we ever have been. We've made huge strides in civil rights and racial equality. We have access to technology that would have awed past generations. But fundamentally, our culture and way of life has undergone some changes that are not necessarily positive.

And yet, despite this real progress, there is a disorienting sense that our social fabric is frayed. We are wealthier in material terms than ever before, but leading thinkers have issued warnings that we are increasingly “bowling alone,” “coming apart” and inhabiting a “fractured republic.”

Why would the former head of a federal agency write an opinion essay defending a federal regulation he created without ever naming the regulation he is trying to defend? Because he doesn’t want you to know there was a time when the regulation never existed.
