The author expresses optimism towards Nevada's export industry despite the economic turndown. It cites the increases in the state's exports of slot machines, industrial machinery, furniture, beddings and lamps. It compares figures collected from the start of 2008 until the end of the third quarter which shows an increase in the state's exports from $4.25 billion to $4.86 billion or a 14% increase. While jobs shrunk in the tourism sector, the author notes that manufacturing jobs have compensated for the losses.
