Manufacturing Talk Radio hosts Lew Weiss and Tim Grady interviewed Dr. Chris Kuehl, managing partner with Armada Corporate Intelligence, and Cliff Waldman, host of Manufacturing Matters with Cliff Waldman, to discuss the outlook for manufacturing in 2020, as well as the overall economy. Kuehl and Waldman are frequent speakers at industry events to inform and educate thousands of attendees on the direction of the industry that underpins the overall U.S. economy.
“Manufacturing is the engine in many countries around the world that leads economies out downturns, drives economic growth, and is the canary in the coal mine sounding the alarm when the economy takes a negative turn,” said Lew Weiss, host of Manufacturing Talk Radio, and a manufacturer himself with All Metals and Forge Group, the sponsor of Manufacturing Talk Radio.
Kuehl and Waldman also work with executives of industry organizations to give them key insights into the performance of their particular sector within the manufacturing industry, so that organization can provide guidance to their respective members throughout each year. These insights drive multi-year strategic decisions, such as capital expenditures for plant expansions, and quick-response comprehension of the short and long-term expansions or contractions of sector and industry activity.
Manufacturing Talk Radio has been airing as a podcast since November of 2013, with interviews of industry executives, business thought leaders, respected economists, non-profit directors, elected officials, academic influencers, congressional representatives, and boots-on-the-ground manufacturing innovators to present a complete picture of the industry and the economy.
