America is behind when it comes to manufacturing, but the fact that the United States stands alone as the world’s leading software creator should headline discussions around rebuilding the arsenal of democracy. Shyam Sankar, chief technology officer at Palantir, argues that a new marriage of software and American manufacturing can—and should—spark innovation across industries, including defense. In conversation with host Marshall Kosloff, Sankar explains how to improve the Department of Defense’s acquisition process, mobilize today for future conflicts, and ensure that, going forward, made in America means made to be the best.
