The Shift from Globalization to Regionalization and Reshoring

The Shift from Globalization to Regionalization and Reshoring

Ten Years Hence aims to engage in some structured speculation about the future – specifically the decade just ahead and the world we’re likely to inhabit ten years from now. We’ll do that from a number of perspectives, but all of it will be focused on one question: Is Globalism Dead?

Harry Moser founded the Reshoring Initiative to bring five million manufacturing jobs back to the U.S. after working for high-end machine tool supplier GF AgieCharmilles, starting as President in 1985 and retiring in 2010 as Chairman Emeritus.

Largely due to the success of the Reshoring Initiative, Mr. Moser was inducted into the Industry Week Manufacturing Hall of Fame 2010 and AME’s Hall of Fame 2021. He was named Quality Magazine’s 2012 Quality Professional of the Year and FAB Shop Magazine’s Manufacturing Person of the Year.

Mr. Moser was recognized by Sue Helper, then Commerce Department Chief Economist, as the driving force in founding the reshoring trend and named to the Commerce Department Investment Advisory Council in August 2019. He testified before the House Commerce Committee and a June 9, 2022 Senate commission Hearing on U.S. supply chains and China.

Mr. Moser received a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering, an Master of Science in Engineering at MIT in 1967, and then an MBA from the University of Chicago in 1981.
