Manufacturing growth slowed in October from September, a troubling sign that factories are struggling in the weak economy. The Institute for Supply Management says its manufacturing index dropped to 50.8, down from 51.6 in September. Measures of production and exports fell and a gauge of employment dipped. On a positive note, survey respondents say raw materials prices fell sharply.
