Bloomberg (10/16/12) Lorraine Woellert
Industrial production in the U.S. rebounded 0.4% in September after a steep drop in the prior month, the U.S. Federal Reserve said today. The increase was more than forecast, and partially reverses the prior month’s slump, indicating manufacturers are regaining their footing.
