    US manufacturing decline and the rise of new production innovation paradigms

    Between 2000 and 2010, US manufacturing experienced a nightmare. The number of manufacturing jobs in the United States, which had been relatively stable at 17 million since 1965, declined by one third in that decade, falling by 5.8 million to below 12 million in 2010 (returning to just 12.3 million in 2016). Certainly, the 2007–08 recession accelerated the disruption, but the causes were also structural, not simply financial.

    Remarks to the United States Council for International Business Roundtable

    The global economic context remains challenging. While a modest upswing is underway ─ we project global GDP growth of 3.3% in 2017 and 3.6% in 2018 ─ the global economy remains stuck in a low growth trap, facing many risks, vulnerabilities, and policy uncertainties. Weak investment and trade continue to weigh on the core drivers of consumption, such as productivity and wage growth.

    Latest indicators of rising business confidence and industrial production are welcome. However, we have been here before over the past five years and left “Waiting for Godot” – for the recovery that never comes. There are reasons to be more optimistic this time around. But we have not yet decisively escaped the low-growth trap. Growth in productivity and wages remains lackluster. Inequality and political tensions are high.
