ABSTRACT
This article presents information on the U.S. machinery industry. It is informed that the domestic spending on machinery and equipment remained anemic in the first quarter of this year, running 8.5% percent below its peak in the first quarter of 2001. Orders for machinery and equipment continue to move sideways, a pattern they have exhibited for well over a year. Orders have tended to be very volatile from month to month, reflecting the ebb and flow of demand for specific types of machinery and equipment.
