Editorial

Material inventiveness

Editorial: Any dullard who thinks metals is a static, one-note, low-tech, plodding industry suffering from an 18th century mentality can be re-educated with this one illuminating issue that you hold in your hands.

Greenhorn gets hooked

Editorial: I was a true greenhorn when I started covering the steel industry in 1995. “One of the first things you have to do is to tour a steelmaking facility,” my editor advised.

Cruel crude

Editorial: In case you’ve been under a rock, there has been a bit of an oil shock.

Rodeo replay

Editorial: Mergers and acquisitions often seem exciting and game-changing at the time they are transacted, but we’ve seen this rodeo before.

Motor function

Editorial: I like to think of transportation networks as similar to your circulatory or nervous system. There’s no motor function without them (pun intended).

Trade/war, part II

Editorial: Free traders and the domestic steel industry are at loggerheads again, this time over a suspension agreement with Russia that allowed Russian hot-rolled coil to enter the U.S. market without duties for the past 15 years.

Gaining perspective

Editorial: Writing this editorial on the final day of the third quarter offers us some perspective on 2014.

Trade/war

Editorial: United States metals companies have sprung to the aid of communities during natural disasters but can you imagine them setting up humanitarian aid stations and evacuation centers, and idling production ... due to war?

Giving back

MikeD-headshot

From the Publisher - For years now, I have heard about the annual Metals Industry Dinner—a fundraiser for the Boy Scouts of America, Chicago Area Council—at the Hyatt Regency Chicago.

Bright light

Editorial: It’s like a bad hangover. Of the few producers that issue earnings guidance, AK Steel Corp. mentioned additional costs would be realized in the second quarter as a result of not receiving iron ore in a timely fashion.
