Perhaps no sector in the U.S. economy generates more angst than manufacturing. Over the past quarter century, manufacturing has hemorrhaged over 5 million jobs. The devastation of many regional economies, particularly in the Midwest, is testament to this decline.

The vote for the United Kingdom to leave the European Union—the so-called "Brexit"—dominated headlines on Friday. For many, this was a surprising result, with many analysts expecting pragmatism to win at the end of the day. For their part, financial markets had already priced-in keeping the United Kingdom in the Eurozone, with the British pound soaring early last week to its highest point year-to-date and the Dow Jones Industrial Average crossing 18,000 for the first time since April 27. With Brexit succeeding instead, the markets gave back some of those equity gains, with the largest declines seen in the United Kingdom itself—at least for now. For instance, one British pound exchanged for $1.3667 on June 22, and it closed at $1.3660 on June 24, falling to a level not seen since 1985.
There’s almost no economic subject that causes more confusion and expressions of ignorance than the trade deficit. Every time any of us writes about it we get deluged with comments insisting that the deficit makes us all poorer, that it reduces the number of jobs in America, that we only pay for it by borrowing, even that the deficit causes the government to borrow from China. Absolutely none of that is true in the slightest and here’s the reason why. The U.S. trade deficit is largely paid for by Europeans investing in American manufacturing. Yes, I know, sounds odd but it is in fact true.
If terms like SQL, Python and JavaScript aren’t on your radar, employers may not be interested in hiring you. Roughly half of the jobs in the top income quartile—defined as those paying $57,000 or more per year—are in occupations that commonly require applicants to have at least some computer coding knowledge or skill, according to an analysis of 26 million U.S. online job postings released this month by job market analytics firm Burning Glass and Oracle Academy, the philanthropic arm of Oracle focused on computer science education, in Redwood City, Calif.

Last week’s vote, by 52 percent of the United Kingdom, to exit from the European Union—the so-called Brexit—has sent shockwaves across global financial markets and plunged manufacturers on both sides of the Atlantic into a long period of uncertainty. While there are no direct immediate consequences for the day-to-day operations of businesses in the UK, EU or the U.S., all businesses engaged in the transatlantic market need to start preparing for the changes that will in fact come.
Washington Post
Britain’s withdrawal from the European Union could have a particularly harsh impact on the country’s auto and manufacturing sectors. Manufacturing accounts for 10 percent of Britain’s gross domestic product, and the automotive industry employs nearly 800,000 people, including parts manufacturing. Another 41,000 are employed in motorsports business.

Internet of Things (IoT) products are red hot and this means my law firm’s China lawyers are getting a steady diet of China IoT legal matters. The biggest problem we are seeing in this industry is that few of the Western (mostly American, European and Australian) companies know who owns what when it comes to the intellectual property tied to "their" IoT product. Needless to say, this causes all sorts of problems.
