Production Pullback: Industrial Production October 2012

Last week, the Federal Reserve released their monthly read of industrial production and capacity utilization showing an notable pullback in October with total industrial production declining 0.43% since September but rising 1.74% above the level seen in October 2011.

Capacity utilization also declined falling 0.57% from September and remaining just 0.24% above the level seen in October of 2011 to stand at 77.79%

It's important to recognize that though the "recovery" is well over two years old, both industrial production and capacity utilization are notably below the peaks set in late 2007.


  1. The Federal Reserve is what causes the housing problems we have now days. I am very impressed with how well they can destroy things. It will get to the point that rent in Saskatoon is more expensive than just buying a house. I have seen it before.

  2. I admire the valuable information you have here in your blog. This is a great review indeed! A lot of people gets more reason to invest in a real estate business because they trust the company and all the services they offer.
