What's going on in UK manufacturing? - BBC News
Manufacturing abt 10% of UK output. The rest of the production industries: mining, quarrying, gas, electricity, water and sewage account for another 5%. The service sector accounts for 79%, with construction making up the final 6%. In the last decade, manufacturing grew gradually from 2005 to 2008, at which point it took a dive in the financial crisis in common with the rest of the economy. It recovered from 2010 until the start of 2012 and has been pretty volatile since then. The sector is still below its pre-crisis peaks, unlike the service sector, which is well above its pre-crisis level. [...] the sector had been "stunned by a triple combination of a sharp slowdown in consumer spending, weak business investment and stagnating export order inflows". But most of the big headlines have been about one sector: steel [ energy price not competitive & bust of commodity prices blown up by ZIRP, NIRP & QE ] [ why not lower energy prices for all!?] & &!
