    • Daily Economic UpdateJanuary 3, 2011 ISM’s manufacturing index increased by 0.7% in December to 57.0. An  index value in excess of 50 suggests both manufacturing and overall  economic expansion. The increase was largely attributable to an increase in new orders and  production, which increased by 7.6% and 10.4% to 60.9 and 60.7  respectively. The manufacturing index is closely linked to GDP growth, and the  strengthening of the manufacturing sector portends positive overall  economic growth. Produced by NAR Research
