Speakers at the National Symposium on American Competitiveness, sponsored by the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania, spoke on American policy formation and business strategies designed to improve American productivity and competitiveness in the global marketplace. Mr. Ephlin discussed the role of American labor in the reattainment of American economic supremacy. He said the current administration’s policies, which lead to the reduction of wages and benefits to American workers, are actually self defeating to America’s economic health. Gov. Roemer discussed the policies his administration instituted to improve Louisiana’s economy, which he said was applicable to the nation as a whole. He called for the nation’s businesses to think globally, but retain the nation’s standards of living. He said American business must make up for the American standard of living by becoming flexible and adapting to the client’s needs. He recited a number of steps necessary for improving American competitiveness, including improving American education and improving America’s attitude. close
