This week I welcome Nick Santhanam to the show. Nick is the CEO of  Fernweh Group, and the co-author of a brand new book The Titanium Economy coming out October 25th in book stores and available for pre-order on Amazon. 

While Silicon Valley titans dominate the headlines nowadays, many of the fastest-growing, most profitable companies in the US are firms you’ve likely never heard of, such as HEICO, Trex, and Casella. These booming companies belong to a burgeoning sector—industrial tech—that offers surprising hope to workers, consumers, and investors alike. 

Nick and I will be discussing some incredible companies in his book - companies such as Trex, a company that manufactures high-performance composite decking using plastic waste. 

In an age of instability, industrial tech is a cornerstone of our economic future, and Nick and his co-authors dispel the myth that the best of American manufacturing is behind us and illuminate an opportunity for a brighter future—if we can seize it.

You can pre-order their upcoming book on Amazon here
