Episode 310: Manufacturing Matters – An Overview Of The Global Economic Environment

In this episode Manufacturing Matters host Cliff Waldman provides listeners with an overview of the global economic environment. Since 2016 the world economy has been a tailwind for U.S. manufacturers after years of post-financial crisis malaise. Unfortunately, in recent months there has been growing evidence of a global slowdown due mostly to weakening growth in China and significant weakness in the Euro area. Cliff explains these problems and offers a forecast for U.S. manufacturing growth for 2019 and 2020.
