Industrial production now exceeds pre-pandemic level

Industrial production, the King of Coincident Indicators, was reported this morning for August and was positive in a particularly significant way.


Total production increased 0.4% in August, and the manufacturing component increased 0.1%.

Total production is 0.3% above its February 2020 love, and manufacturing is 1.5% above its pre-pandemic level. This leaves employment as the only coincident indicator which has not completely recovered its pandemic deficit.
