Economic focus: US industrial decline caused by energy bust or dollar surge?


Economic focus: US industrial decline caused by energy bust or dollar surge?

Report summary

US industrial production has fallen 4% since mid-2014. Over that period, the US energy sector has slumped and the US dollar surged. Both of these factors are negatives for US industry. However, granular data for industrial output and US exports suggest that the decline in industry is much more a commodity story than a currency story.
