Manufacturing took a hit because the banks received huge bail outs and out side of the auto industry the rest of us were left to build rafts from the wreckage.

Growth in manufacturing, less financial “innovation” and more investment in areas of science (real science not economics) that improve everyones life instead of just raising Manhattan Real Estate Prices.

In fact, overall, employment in finance has grown, while employment in just about all of the rest of the US has shrunk.

The game is definitely rigged.
