Manufacturing in Kansas City Region improved in August

The Kansas City (MO) Star (8/22, Rosen) reported manufacturing in the Kansas City Federal Reserve Bank District improved in August. The Kansas City Fed’s monthly manufacturing index rose to eight in August from six the previous month. Chad Wilkerson, a vice president and economist at the Kansas City Fed, said, “‘Although some firms noted weakness in August associated with federal spending cuts and difficulties finding workers, we were encouraged to see another solid gain’ in the overall manufacturing index and most of its components.”

The Wall Street Journal (8/22, Subscription Publication), the Wichita (KS) Eagle (8/23, Voorhis) and other media sources also cover the story.
