Very interesting article. There’s one thing I didn’t understand:
- $4.7 trillion: Reduction in cumulative GDP over 10 years
- $74 billion: Loss to the manufacturing industry
- $65 billion: Loss to the wholesale and retail trade industry
- $54 billion: Loss to the leisure hospitality industry
Why would that happen? I can imagine reasons for the last two, but what about the manufacturing industry?
And what is the source of this information?
