Back to McKinsey Themes

Meet the authors of The Titanium Economy

In The Titanium Economy, Asutosh Padhi, Gaurav Batra, and Nick Santhanam reveal industrial tech, an under-appreciated and under-valued sector of the economy, for what it really is: a reliable source of high-paying, domestic jobs and soaring stock prices—a bright spot in an economy that has too often been buffeted by external shocks. Before the #TitaniumEconomyBook is released on October 25, check out these videos to hear from the authors directly about their professional journeys, why it was important for them to tell the stories of these lesser-known companies, and why America’s industrial manufacturing base could be the key to the country’s future economic growth.
