In addition to running for Congress, he is also currently a Silicon Valley technology lawyer, professor of economics at Stanford University and professor of law at Santa Clara University. Ro’s book on manufacturing, Entrepreneurial Nation: Why Manufacturing is Still Key to America’s Future, has won widespread praise for its strategies for keeping the best companies, jobs and opportunities in America.
