Series overview

The manufacturing activities of major developed nations are important to watch for investors. After a huge fall and rise in the US manufacturing sector in recent months, it’s important for investors to analyze whether US President Donald Trump’s imposition of import tariffs on various nations, such as China, Europe, Mexico, and Canada, will affect the whole global economy or not.
