Report: U.S. losing run manufacturing jobs at a rapid rate

The stock market dropped today over news that the U.S. continues to lose run manufacturing jobs, with Latin America as the top destination. "Year after year, guys like Albert Pujols and Miguel Cabrera remain atop the RBI list," said Goldman Sachs analyst Elliott James. "Even the Asia market, behind the likes of Hideki Matsui, as well as Ichiro Suzuki's ability to get on base, has lessened America's hold on run producing." But White House economic adviser Larry Summers says the U.S. still maintains the lead in run manufacturing. "We produce quality runs," he said. "Truly manufactured runs. Guys getting to first then getting bunted over, then hustling to third on a single slapped to right and then scoring on a sacrifice fly. That's a scrappy run. That's an American-made run."
