New Podcast Name Combines Cliff Notes and Manufacturing Matters into Manufacturing Think Tank with Cliff Waldman with Expanded Content and New Guests
FAIRFIELD, NEW JERSEY, UNITED STATES, December 29, 2022/ EINPresswire.com / -- The Manufacturing Talk Radio Podcast combines two separate podcast titles, Manufacturing Matters with Cliff Waldman and Cliff Notes, into Manufacturing Think Tank with Cliff Waldman with expanded content and new guests for 2023. The format and length will remain the same, but the focus and topics will take a broader look and provide more depth into the manufacturing industry and its many sectors, including Apparel, Leather and Allied Products; Printing and Related Support Activities; Machinery; Nonmetallic Mineral Products; Computer and Electronic Products; Food, Beverage and Tobacco Products; Transportation Equipment; Paper Products; Petroleum and Coal Products; Plastics and Rubber Products; Fabricated Metal Products; Chemical Products; Miscellaneous Manufacturing; Primary Metals; Electrical Equipment, Appliances and Components; and Furniture and Related Products. The podcast will focus on economic conditions as they may impact sectors or the industry as a whole.
Manufacturing is a bellwether indicator for the direction of the U.S. economy. Although it comprises about 9% of workers in the economy and generates some 10% of GDP, it feeds consumer, industrial, and government buying. In addition, the cycle time to make a finished product, from raw material ordering to final delivery, takes between six months and two years, depending upon the product. Government projects can take much longer. This means that manufacturers are looking months and even years ahead for materials and employees that will be needed in their production processes. When the demand for finished goods falls, manufacturers react quickly to reduce inventory and headcount, usually six to nine months before the rest of the economy feels the downturn.
Close observers of manufacturing, such as podcast host Cliff Waldman, keep a watchful eye on these shifts and speak with people in and around the industry to confirm how the industry is performing so they can present the most relevant, forward-looking insights. Listeners will gain the benefit of foresight for their companies when they share Mr. Waldman’s analysis internally, giving their company time to act rather than react to near-term conditions and potential outcomes at the post-horizonal vortex.
