Once again I got a sort-of-last-minute request last night from Breitbart News Tonight to appear on that radio show.  But thanks to the invention of the podcast, you can listen to the interview on-line.  So click here (the segment with my name on it is right near the top), for a great discussion about how President Trump’s tariffs are (and aren’t) impacting the American economy and its manufacturing sector, and about whether a truce in the U.S.-China trade war is in the offing.

In addition, it was great to be quoted yesterday on the trade implications of the latest Federal Reserve industrial production data by Breitbart‘s John Carney – the only other analyst I’ve seen who has consistently been reporting on the message being sent by official U.S economic data on the tariffs’ actual impact on the U.S. economy.

Finally, IndustryToday.com this last week re-published two recent RealityChek posts – on how supposedly tariff-vulnerable metals-using industries generally have been claiming even more job openings than the rest of the manufacturing sector; and on a possible big new reason why manufacturing wages have lagged so far beyond job creation.

And keep checking in with RealityChek for news of upcoming media appearances and other developments.
