BOX 495-527 "Surviving the Bottom Line," 1994-2000
Originally starting out as a planned sequel to "Challenge to America," "Surviving the Bottom Line" evolved into a four-part series looking at the United States economy and how many Americans struggle to survive. The series begins with “Running With the Bulls,” a look at corporate America and how chief executive officers (CEOs) grapple with investors from Wall Street to balance running companies while promoting stock growth. Through interviews with former executives, Hedrick Smith covers the merger of Chase and Chemical Banks, the rapid expansion of ValuJet, and the cost cutting of CEO Albert J. Dunlap at Sunbeam Products. In “Living on the Fault Line,” Smith travels to San Diego to explore the transition the city made from manufacturing to high-tech industry. One example is Qualcomm, which compensates its engineers and programmers well, but relies on temporary employment for its manufacturing division. Personal stories of these temporary employees are told, and illustrate the hardships of needing to work over sixty to eighty hours per week to keep benefits at the expense of seeing their families. “Learning to Survive” explores the ways public education is adapting to the challenges of a changing economy and how schools are preparing students for the workforce. Smith travels to two schools in Shanghai, China; the Alliance Schools Initiative in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas; the Academy of Health and Bioscience in Oakland, California; and the Cincinnati State Technical and Community College; to detail the different programs these schools are offering to prepare students for a global economy. Finally, in “Beating the Bottom Line,” Smith looks at how various company executives have changed their approaches in managing profits by sharing with employees to lessen the wealth gap. Companies visited include the Hathaway Shirt Company and their partnership with Waterville, Maine to help keep the company afloat despite cheaper imported textiles; and Harman International’s refusal to lower costs by moving its production to Mexico. Labor unions and their roles in protecting jobs in a Newport News, Virginia shipyard and Northwest Airlines is also covered. Finally, Smith travels to the Netherlands to interview the president of Holland’s Social Economic Council, and learns of the various worker protections the Dutch government provides for its citizens. Some footage from this documentary was used for the The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer production of “High Skills Tech Gap.” Material in this subseries includes production bibles, digital files, interview transcripts, and segment planning documents.
