As proponents of foreign outsourcing, The Institute for Supply Management is notorious for placing fallacious spin on it's bogus statistics. Government policies remain structurally hostile to the manufacturing sector, and there is no reason to suspect any long term reversal of the outsourcing trend. Until more detail statistics are made available, one would have to conclude that this is either a temporary seasonal blip, or that "hiring" has increased due to retirement of stable, senior employees and job churn occurring among inexperienced newhires. An increase in hiring doesn't necessarily indicate an increase of actual jobs available.

Per Willie Green ... The Institute for Supply Management is notorious for placing fallacious spin on it's bogus statistics. Government policies remain structurally hostile to the manufacturing sector ...

From the Reuters source article ... "The ISM index is compiled from monthly responses by purchasing executives at more than 400 industrial companies, ranging from textiles and chemicals to paper and computers."

Yeah, it's a shame all those blacksmiths have been put out of work by evil Government policies that are hostile to the manufacturing sector. You need to go back to square one and read "Wealth of Nations" so that you'll have a clue.

So then, it should be fairly easy for you to actually prove the statistics wrong.
