Who's Bigger

Sorry for the poor blogging recently. Busy, busy, busy. But I couldn't pass this up.

So - What country is the biggest producer of manufactured goods?? Huh?

Drum roll please....

The United States!!! Ding! Ding! Ding!

Yes, the U.S. is still the largest manufacturer in the world. You'd never know by reading the news for the past five or seven years. Sure, Asia, especially China has been growing, but they still have a ways to go to catch up (although it will probably be soon).

Most people don't think of the U.S. as a top manufacturer anymore, but it hasn't all left. Mass produced consumer products and labor intensive goods have moved offshore, but that's only natural. The U.S. is still heavily involved in other products. Chemicals, including pharmaceuticals and cosmetics, Transportation Equipment, Food products, and Computers and Electronics are just some of the major industries.
