Shale Gas the tsunami of change for US manufacturing
Andrew Liveris CEO Dow Chemical Company
“U.S. energy landscape is changing on the back of cheap natural gas from shale deposits, which is turning producers away from “offshoring” energy-intensive industries. The discovery of shale gas is perhaps the greatest development in the modern era. Shale gas is a huge – and potentially long-term – competitive advantage for U.S.-based companies”

This impacts US manufacturing not only in energy costs but also raw materials and product substitution.
