The Brookings Institution's Bruce Katz opined this week on smokestack-free manufacturing in such places as Sheffield, UK, and Fremont, Calif. We remember first paying heed to those two advanced communities in 2008 and 2010, respectively.

 
For 26 years before Tesla moved into its Fremont plant, the factory was home to General Motors and Toyota’s New United Motor Manufacturing, Inc. (NUMMI), which produced 500,000 cars a year.

"Why do I read Site Selection?"
 
In writing my daily blogs for the Nasdaq I find Site Selection magazine to be a valuable resource. I have written many articles in which I have quoted the magazine, and I find that some articles have actually opened up avenues for me to inform my readers about investment opportunities that may have gone unnoticed."
