The purpose of this blog is to provide a little balance to the widespread notion that North American manufacturing in general and US manufacturing in particular is rapidly 'going down the tubes'.

After having examined mutliple sources of quantitative information about US and global manufacturing it is my belief that the health of manufacturing in North America is much better than widely believed.

Over the next few weeks and months it is my hope to share with you some of the results of my investigations into such questions as "What manufacturing sectors are doing well, and which are struggling?", and "Is the USA really turning into a service economy?"
