EDITORIAL Good enough for US bosses! Let’s look back one year: Donald Trump is in the middle of the election campaign. He casts himself in his appearances as the Business President. Here embracing a CEO, there with swaggering talk about the future of the USA while speaking with leading captains of industry. The incoming president is pleased with his role as the darling of business. And he enjoys a high level of trust – after all he has promised to do away with onerous regulations and tighten trade restrictions. One year later the tide has turned. After six months in office there is growing impatience in financial circles. The president has not been able to keep his promises, his reforms remain but vague concepts and the expected million dollar orders have yet to show up. And US economic growth in the first quarter of 2017 was at it weakest in three years. The mood has not shifted yet, but negative impact on the job market and productivity are already knocking softly at the door. How further developments will unfold is just as uncertain as Trump’s policies themselves. It is still too early to forecast the impact on global economic activity and mechanical engineering, although there are as yet no signs of a downturn in Germany, which has the world’s strongest mechanical engineering market. – Hopefully it will stay that way! One issue we deal with in this edition is the US economy, bringing clarity to the current situation. An article about “Trump’s America” will give you an inside view. As always you can again expect a wealth of technical topics covering varied aspect of drive and fluid technology in WORLD OF INDUSTRIES.
