Wal-Mart Proposes Actions To Boost U.S. Manufacturing

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. on Wednesday proposed 10 policy actions to boost U.S. manufacturing that the retailer said could help recapture $300 billion of the $650 billion worth of consumer goods that are currently imported.

Wal-Mart said barriers to manufacturing growth include a lack of available and qualified workers and of coordination and financing to support U.S. manufacturers, complex regulations that create high compliance costs and legal risks, and the need for an overhaul of the U.S. tax system and trade deals.
