Greetings ladies and gentlemen and welcome to a new installment of Manufacturing Monday. Now I would like to do something a tad different this week. You see today we get two important economic indicators released. So, instead of waiting a whole week for me to reprise them here, I would go ahead and write about then today! I will still go over last week’s indicators, but figured you deserve to get something more up to date as well. The numbers get released around 9:30 Eastern, so they will be covered first, then last week’s stuff.
Beyond the Numbers section, this week we’ll be covering Green Manufacturing again. We haven’t touched this in a while, what with all the GM related business. Yet there have been some very interesting developments in the green collar world. So before you, for your pleasure, is some stuff that may or may not put a smile on your face. Either way, it looks as if, thankfully, we are turning a new leaf (sorry, couldn’t help it) on manufacturing!
