    The Fiscal Cliff Explainer: What It Is, Where It's From, Who Will Pay, and Why It Matters
    The Atlantic    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
    The end of the election means the most important story in politics is the fiscal cliff — a sudden rise in taxes combined with spending cuts scheduled for Jan. 1. But before we get to the policy — and the graphs — let's talk about the term. "Cliff" is an imperfect analogy. It's really more a long, rolling hill. A fiscal slope. Whether you prefer cliffs or loping hillsides for your metaphor, topography is a good analogy for this crisis. It has been forming, as if tectonically, for many years. More

    For Manufacturing and Energy, More Wrangling With a Divided Washington
    The Wall Street Journal (subscription)    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
    President Barack Obama's election victory means another two years at least that manufacturers and the energy industry will have to work both sides of the partisan divide on issues ranging from taxation to climate change. Manufacturers want Mr. Obama and congressional leaders to embrace a corporate tax overhaul that lowers the 35 percent top corporate tax rate, and reduces or eliminates U.S. taxes on profits earned and taxed overseas. But the uncertainty over how – or whether — a divided Washington will break the impasse over spending and tax issues wasn't resolved by the election result. More

    Manufacturing Companies Thrive in America as Industry Faces 'Renaissance'
    NBC News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
    The United States may have shifted to a postindustrial economy, but that does not mean the manufacturing sector is dead. Far from it. From coast to coast, manufacturers are making more products, but with fewer people, as the sector makes an improbable rebound after a tough recession. In fact, the manufacturing sector is staging something of a comeback, adding a half million jobs over the past two years as the economy has slowly gained momentum, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

    112-Year-Old US Apparel Maker in Pennsylvania to Close
    The Associated Press via The Atlanta Journal-Constitution    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
    One of the last U.S. apparel manufacturers of its kind is losing its shirt. FesslerUSA had survived war and depression, free trade and foreign imports, producing millions of knitted garments from its base in eastern Pennsylvania. Five years ago, third-generation owner Walter Meck and his family were feeling so good about the company's prospects they doubled capacity, moving into a former pencil factory outside the small town of Orwigsburg.

    Monty Boyd: In Hard Times, Sometimes You Go Long
    Business First    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
    Monty Boyd, the owner of Louisville, Ky.-based Whayne Supply Co. and the Cecil I. Walker Machinery Co., remains bullish on the future of coal. He put his money where his mouth and the companies announced the purchase of the distribution and serving rights to Bucyrus mining machinery from Caterpillar Global Mining LLC. The purchase gave the companies the right to sell and service Bucyrus equipment in their territories, which gives them inroads into the market for underground mining equipment. Previously, the companies sold and serviced equipment for surface mining and other industries, but not for underground mining. More

    Firms Help Vets Move Into Manufacturing Careers
    USA Today    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
    General Electric, Alcoa, Boeing, Lockheed Martin and a national industry group are joining forces to gets thousands, perhaps tens of thousands, of veterans into high-paying manufacturing careers. The wide-ranging effort will match military skills with civilian jobs, offer veterans training to fill skill gaps, and share best practices among companies for recruiting and keeping veteran workers.

    Caterpillar Dealers See Demand for Generators Rising
    Bloomberg Businessweek    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
    Hurricane Sandy, the third storm in the past 14 months to disrupt power supply to millions of U.S. homes and businesses, has boosted demand for generators made by Caterpillar Inc. and Generac Holdings Inc. as frustrated customers experience more frequent blackouts. More than a week after Sandy cut power to 8.5 million customers in 11 states, almost 1 million are still without power. Caterpillar dealers and Honda Motor Co. have had to shift inventory to meet demand as blackouts linger for owners of some homes and businesses. More

    Manufacturing in US Expands at Faster Pace in October
    Bloomberg Businessweek    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
    Manufacturing expanded more than forecast, consumer confidence rose to a four-year high and fewer Americans filed claims for unemployment benefits, pointing to resilience in the U.S. economy heading into the fourth quarter. The Institute for Supply Management's factory index rose to a five-month high of 51.7 in October from 51.5. "We're getting a sense of stabilization, we're no longer slipping," said Michael Feroli, chief U.S. economist at JPMorgan Chase & Co. in New York. More

    Time to Invest In Hardware and Manufacturing Startups
    Forbes    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
    We have our eye on another sphere of innovations that may create VC opportunities for physical products in the energy space: manufacturing innovations. It is possible that the affordability and new capabilities of 3-D printing will change the way products are manufactured, even products for the old-fashioned energy industry. Also, 20 percent of 3-D printing output is already producing final product with that percentage expected to increase as capabilities improve, reducing the money and time spent in product development as well.

    Ireland Puts a Fresh Focus on Manufacturing
    Industry Week    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
    The word "renaissance" may bring to mind images of Leonardo da Vinci paintings and the rolling hills of Italy, but today, a new European revival is underway — only this time, it originates in the manufacturing facilities of Ireland. The manufacturing landscape is evolving as the global economy steps into a fragile recovery. Against the backdrop of the eurozone debt crisis and volatile commodity prices, multinationals are now having to perfect the art of manufacturing amid increasing uncertainty. More
