Alan Greenspan, Ph.D., former chairman of the Federal Reserve Board, has said of the ISM <cite>Manufacturing Report On Business</cite>®, "I find the surveys conducted by the purchasing and supply managers to be an excellent supplement to the data supplied by various departments and agencies of government."

According to Joseph E. Stiglitz, former chairman of President Clinton's Council of Economic Advisors, "The ISM <cite>Manufacturing Report On Business</cite>® has one of the shortest reporting lags of any macro-economic series and gives an important early look at the economy. It also measures some concepts (such as lead times and delivery lags) that can be found nowhere else. It makes an important contribution to the American statistical system and to economic policy."

Michael J. Boskin, Ph.D., professor of economics, Hoover Institute senior fellow at Stanford University; and former chairman of President Bush's Council of Economic Advisors, said "The ISM <cite style="font-family: arial, sans-serif; color: black;">Manufacturing Report On Business</cite>® is extremely useful. The PMI, the <cite style="font-family: arial, sans-serif; color: black;">Report's </cite>composite index, gives the earliest indication each month of the health of the manufacturing sector. It is an essential component for assessing the state of the economy." Boskin also said the President's Council of Economic Advisors closely monitored the ISM indexes, especially the New Export Order's Index.

Lewis A. Weiss, President of All Metals & Forge Group and co-host of Manufacturing Talk Radio, said "When the PMI begins trending above 50 each month, our business is growing. When it begins trending below 50, our business is contracting.  It's been dead on month after month for more than 40 years."

Tim Grady, host of Manufacturing Talk Radio, said, "If someone misses this show, they should listen to it later at,,, or The combined economic information will highlight everything from dirt to done in business and industry and give a powerful overview of where this economy is and most likely heading in 2014."
