Mitch Free is the CEO of MFG.com, an online marketplace for the manufacturing industry. Because of his extensive travel and business with suppliers, manufacturers and importers, Free is in a unique position to monitor manufacturing companies all over the world.
One of the biggest economic concerns in the last few months has been the notion that China is losing steam as an economic powerhouse, toppling a fragile world economy. “Not likely,” said Free during a recent interview. “China is going to be the powerhouse for a long time.
