Original description from KCET: Everyone assumed that Southern California’s economy would soar forever. It hasn’t, and we now face the unpleasant reality of businesses, primarily manufacturing, permanently feeling our inhospitable financial climate. Reporter Jim Forbes explores the consequences and the alternatives. Part 1: Profile - Wilford “Woody” Godbold, CEO, Zero Corporation is the chair of the California Chamber of Commerce committee formed to keep businesses from leaving the state. At the same time, Zero Corporation is moving 2 of its 9 California-based firms to Utah. Part 2: Bob Barbour heads a large parts manufacturing consortium made up of dozens of machine shops, foundries and accessory manufacturers, and all are run by immigrant entrepreneurs. Barbour and company may be the resilient future of manufacturing in Southern California.
