2) "even as manufacturing’s share has declined and fewer people work in the sector, IP has still risen significantly over the previous 60 years. That reflects a growing economy with rising productivity, so output has been increasing despite the fact there are fewer workers. Alongside that, we’ve of course had an increasing move to services." -Deutsche Bank
