The Complete Picture: Manufacturing’s Contribution to the U.S. Economy

This week, several national news outlets — including Bloomberg — made much ado about a new federal report showing U.S. manufacturing fell to “11% of gross domestic product in the second quarter,” the smallest share in data going back to 1947. (Note: In Ohio, manufacturing comprises nearly 17% of the state’s GDP.)

Unfortunately, this is a woefully incomplete picture. Excluded from this GDP report are ancillary manufacturing activities such as R&D, corporate management, logistics operations, and advertising and branding. As a result, news media all too often fail to mention key facts such as the following:

Finally, it should be noted that compared to other industries, manufacturing is efficient in adding value — certainly much more today than in 1947.
