Navigating the numbers: how is the economy really doing?
Let's face it. The economy is lousy. Has been for some time now. But there's a big election in three months, and the economy is Issue No. 1 (and 2, and 3, it seems). That means that from now until November, you are going to be hearing a lot about how lousy the economy is, who is to blame and what to do about it. And every twitch of the stock market, every jump in jobless claims or every rumble from Europe is going to be spun and counterspun by politicians who want your vote. But how do you cut through the spin? What numbers matter? St. Louis Today

There are numerous factors driving the new industrial revolution in the South. And it is a revolution, as this manufacturing surge that began in 2007 continues to break records year after year in the total number of large, capital intensive projects. One factor, of course, is that reshoring of facilities back to the U.S. continues to grow each year.
