(My apologies folks, for the delay. This was supposed to be published this morning, but I had rush a sick wiener dog to one of those emergency vet places. Rest assured, he's Ok, and probably won't eat another sock again!)
Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to another edition of Manufacturing Monday...er Tuesday! Originally I wanted to post this on Monday morning, but I wanted to include the latest development from the Boeing SPEEA talks. Outside of this we got news from the steel industry, unfortunately not the good kind. Sticking with steel for a moment, there's an op-ed piece I wish to highlight that I thought you should look at. We have news or alarm bells I should say about pensions. Of course we also have some Green news, some ominous, but some good.
But before we get to those, let's take a look at the Numbers!

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!

Today we conclude our small series on General Motors. As you can probably tell by now, I favor helping out the company. The company has history of market incompetence, it not only failed to meet various customer demands. Adding to this, it designed its product line in such a way that made it at times more at the mercy of the price of petroleum than anything else. Saying this, there are reasons to keep GM alive.

In our first installment, we introduced you to the current battle for the fate of General Motors. We highlighted why they share some if not all of the blame for their current situation. We talked about the various sides involved in one way or another with the situation of GM. Today we tackle the big question, what many deemed "unthinkable" previously, what bankruptcy would mean for General Motors and you.

Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to another installment of Manufacturing Monday. Today we are going to cover something that has been in the news lately, General Motors. Well to be exact, the potential bankruptcy of GM, and what it could mean to you. For many, this is a non-issue, who cares about another car company and a failing one at that? But indeed, it may just be that a collapse of GM could be worse than that of Lehman Brothers and AIG. Of course we'll cover, as always, the economic indicators for the past week and what they also mean. So without further adieu, the Numbers!
