The Biden weakness keeps growing.



In the latest sign of turbulence in the US economy, New York-area manufacturing suffered a large and unexpected setback in August, according to a survey released on Monday.

The New York Federal Reserve said its Empire State Manufacturing Survey plunged by 42 points in August to -31.3. That marks the second-largest monthly decline on record for this closely watched gauge of economic activity. The biggest drop was recorded in April 2020, when the economy was ravaged by the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The August reading leaves the Empire State survey at its lowest point since May 2020 and at among the lowest levels since the survey launched in April 2002. Any reading below zero indicates a contraction. "The headline general business conditions index plummeted," the report said. "New orders and shipments plunged, and unfilled orders declined."

Economists had expected a more modest slowdown in the survey that would still signal expansion.

"Startlingly terrible," Ian Shepherdson, chief economist at Pantheon Macroeconomics, wrote in a note on Monday. "Momentum in the manufacturing sector certainly has slowed, but this is a collapse."

...


Just 12% of manufacturing respondents reported improving conditions, while 44% said conditions weakened, according to the survey, which was collected between August 2 and August 9. Looking ahead, manufacturing executives signaled concern: The index for future business conditions came in at just 2.1, indicating businesses are not optimistic about the next six months. Although indexes for future new orders and shipments are positive, they remained at "low levels."

The Biden administration is doing a piss-poor job of hiding just how bad their recession is. It's far worse than they're telling us, the signs are everywhere.

Thanks for the 14th thread on this topic.

You might want to ask your handlers why you got your talking points email so late compared to the others

There is 0% inflation, "Come On, Man!" :wink:

It can't be stressed enough: The Biden administration is a dismal and utter failure, the likes of which this country has never seen. And yet, they glibly act as if everything has never been better.

Great news! The quicker the blue states fold, the better off we will all be.

Why the hate for this country is no surprise from the OP. Makes little sense to me.

Not the manufacturing sector of NY, though. That collapsing is not any kind of good.


Glad to see someone understands this.

It is often, though not always, a national harbinger.

From someone who spent 4-years hating America in the Trump years, that's rich.
