It is unlikely that very many economists ever thought they would have to contemplate the impact of a rapidly spreading, globally menacing pathogen on the economic outlook. But that day is upon us. Of course at Manufacturing Talk Radio, our focus is on the US manufacturing sector. In this episode of ‘Cliff Notes on the Global Manufacturing Picture’, host Cliff Waldman will discuss the just-released report on February industrial production as well as the most recent report on manufacturing from the Institute for Supply Management to begin to offer a picture of how the coronavirus crisis is impacting US industry. He will conclude by putting the data in the context of a rapidly changing set of circumstances.
