USA Manufactured Exports Likely Fell in August 2010

High value manufactured items move in and out of the USA in containers – and most of the containers into America move through the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach. August 2010 data show imports into the United States have almost returned to pre-Great Recession highs, while exports are down YoY.

Imports in containers are generally consumer items, and this data suggests that consumer spending is still increasing. Exports, being down YoY, would suggest a larger trade balance in August – as well as concern of lower demand for American manufactured products.
