Editorial

From the top

Editorial: The United States, the president said, is “best positioned” to take advantage of the global marketplace, with the most innovative entrepreneurs, the best technology and the best workforce.

Oracle of Peoria

Editorial: Caterpillar Inc. is one of the largest individual purchasers of metal products in North America and sources around the world for steel plate, sheet, tubing, special sections, special-bar quality, forgings and castings, rings, fasteners, aluminum alloys, magnesium, etc. For many metals suppliers, Cat is a top customer.

Wish list

Editorial: Instead of resolutions I know I have a scant chance of keeping, I thought I would draft a wish list for the new year.

Cycling through

Editorial: “When you come to a fork in the road, take it.”

A colossus reborn?

Editorial: In her poem, “New Colossus,” Emma Lazarus describes our Statue of Liberty as the Mother of Exiles. Manufacturers, “tempest tossed” by the vagaries of the international marketplace, are rediscovering the New World as arguably the smartest place to produce durable goods.

Building consensus?

Editorial: By volume, nonresidential construction is the largest consuming market for metal products in North America but the housing bust and related economic crisis of 2008 put a fat dent in demand.

Blue steel

Editorial: I may as well confess my bias right here. I am the daughter of a police officer who served the City of Chicago for more than 33 years. And my brother has been on the force for 24 years.

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.
