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.
