As politicians fight over how and when the U.K. will leave the EU, Brexit's impact is felt around the world. A no-deal Brexit, which has the U.K. exiting the EU on March 29 without a clear trade agreement, is said to have potentially catastrophic consequences for U.K. manufacturing. How does all this impact U.S. manufacturing? First, we need to understand Brexit's impact on U.K. manufacturing — especially automobiles.
As manufacturers in the United States enjoy substantial job growth, the resulting need for additional skilled workers has left the industry struggling to keep up. Innovative technologies, strong economic development and retiring baby boomers are driving a widening shortage of qualified job applicants in the space, especially for positions that require more technical skills.
The numbers: American manufacturers grew their businesses in February at the slowest pace since the election of President Donald Trump in November 2016, offering more proof the U.S. economy has gotten off to a slow start this year. The Institute for Supply Management said its survey of top manufacturing executives fell to 54.2 percent last month from 56.6 percent in January.
Productivity gains in the U.S. last quarter exceeded forecasts though were little changed from the prior reading as output and hours worked both cooled, with efficiency improvements surpassing the recent average for a third period. Nonfarm business employee output per hour increased at a 1.9 percent annualized rate, according to Labor Department figures that were delayed a month by the government shutdown.
After 52 years of cranking out more than 16 million new vehicles, the General Motors assembly plant in Lordstown, Ohio, is shutting down. The last Chevy Cruze rolled off the line on March 6 — a white sedan headed to a dealership in Florida — leaving thousands of workers to start building new lives as retirees or in new jobs, many in new cities.
The OECD cut forecasts again for the global economy in 2019 and 2020, following on from previous downgrades in November, as it warned that trade disputes and uncertainty over Brexit would hit world commerce and businesses. The Organization for Economic Co-Operation & Development forecast in its interim outlook report that the world economy would grow 3.3 percent in 2019 and 3.4 percent in 2020.
Arguably the most significant technological advance for American business — the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), which holds the promise of unimagined productivity gains and untold benefits to consumers — isn't assured. That's the essence of a new study produced by the Manufacturing Policy Initiative (MPI) out of Indiana University.
