With today’s Stainless Steel Espresso, we take a look at economic development in the United States. How China and the US could come to a joint solution on steel. And why the Europeans are cowering fearfully behind their thick medieval walls in the face of the alleged Chinese threat.
USA: Dynamic economic recovery continues
Good news! The much-watched ISM Purchasing Managers’ Index for the manufacturing sector in the USA climbed to 64.7 points in March – the highest level since 1983. Meanwhile, the index for the service sector rose by an extraordinary 8.4 points to an all-time high of 63.7 points. This means that companies rated their business outlook significantly better in March than in February.
Steel: How China and the USA are seeking win-win cooperation
In an interesting article, Neal Kimberley at scmp.com looks at how China and the U.S. are seeking win-win cooperation – at least on one issue: steel. To meet China’s goal of reducing its carbon footprint, regulators want to cut crude steel production. This would also address U.S. concerns about Chinese overproduction in the steel industry.

In addition, today we take a look at the Europeans who want to hide their steel industry behind ever thicker walls and thus protect it from foreign competition. And on daring European corporations that are willing to face Chinese competition.
