US industrial production fell 0.6% in January, compared with expectations for a slight increase, says Business Insider. One economist said, "Manufacturing is under real pressure from the slowdown in China and the trade war." He went on to say, "We expect output to drift down over the first half of the year, putting the sector into a mild recession." The sector has been pulled especially lower due to a steep fall in auto production. Carmakers across the US warned last year they could be hurt by the trade war between Washington and Beijing.
