Economic Nationalism is Gains in Manufacturing

 

The administration of Donald J. Trump has seen an acceleration in U.S. manufacturing activity, to its highest level in nearly 1-1/2 years in July according to Reuters, even with the combined supply and demand shocks that have ravaged the world economy with the most severe downturn since the Great Depression.

Bookings Institute asked, “Is the future one of deglobalization, decoupling, and reshoring of economic activity?” Things seem to be point in Trump’s direction.

“About 72% of industries reported growth last month,” Reuters reported.

They added the technical details reporting, “The  Institute for Supply Management (ISM) said its index of national factory activity raced to a reading of 54.2 last month from 52.6 in June. That was the strongest since March 2019 and marked two straight months of expansion. A reading above 50 indicates growth in manufacturing, which accounts for 11% of the U.S. economy. Economists polled by Reuters had forecast the index would rise to 53.6 in July.”

That is much stronger than was expected, allowing Trump to celebrate a little bit along with the overall expansion in the economy for the third straight month

The White House Rapid Response team reported the good news Monday, calling the announcement, “The great American comeback”:

The ISM also reported, “Demand is growing as is evident by the strong gain in the New Orders Index at 61.5%. That represents an increase of 5.1 from the June reading of 56.4%. New orders are being supported by the New Export Orders Index re-entering expansion.”

The New Orders (61.5%) and Production (62.1%) indexes show rates of change that signify a U.S. manufacturing sector returning to work in July after the pandemic induced slowdown. Both had their highest readings since summer/fall.

Manufacturing gains is a large part of Trump’s 2020 Presidential platform:

REASON FOR ECONOMIC NATIONALISM

Protecting the country from too many imports and employing citizens over foreigners, is generally what is called “Economic Nationalism”. President Trump’s America First platform comes from a Populist movement of workers and small business proponents after at least a decade of frustration over the loss of employment and opportunities.

Under former President Barack Obama, there was massive loss of opportunity and jobs.

Republicans were not the ones to champion Economic Nationalism or protecting the American worker until President Trump was elected.

No matter how much his opposition tried to stop him, until the Pandemic, Trump’s economy was soaring.

Trump took care of the most neglected American workers, including Farmers.

The 2020 Presidential election could see a huge amount of crossover from the Democrats, because of the pro-American working-class, Farmer, and pro-small business victories for Trump.
