WSJ: Manufacturing Renaissance at Risk Due to Strengthening Dollar

The Wall Street Journal reported that the rising dollar is thwarting the plans of U.S. manufacturers that export goods.

While a good sign for the U.S. economy in general, especially consumers and importers, the Journal said the strong dollar may reverse the trend toward a U.S. “manufacturing renaissance.”
