    Re: Hypothetical Economic Scenario

    In this area of Michigan, we have two primary industries for employment, the auto industry and the furniture industry. The auto industry you know about, and it is tough times there. For the furniture industry: WOOD TV8 | US office furniture shipments to drop.

    The Grand Rapids-based trade organization says on its Web site that shipments are expected to drop 31 percent this year, to $7.7 billion, when compared with 2008.
    Exports do not tell the whole story. Further, who has said that "American manufacturing is dying"? Without context, it's hard to judge things.

    Eh? It was slower to profitability than originally planned, but it's been profitable since 2001.

    Unless you're referring to cumulative revenues vs. cumulative debt.

    Ya, I mean it's been in the red since it was founded. It's growing, but it still hasn't recouped its losses.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.
