Deindustrialization

De-industrialization is a process of social and economic change caused by the removal or reduction of industrial capacity or activity in a country or region of heavy industry or manufacturing industry. It is the opposite of industrialization. There are different interpretations of. Many associate de-industrialization of the United States with the mass closing of automaker plants in the now so-called "Rust Belt" between 1980 and 1990; the US Federal Reserve raised interest and exchange rates 1979 to 1984, which automatically caused import prices to fall. Japan was expanding productivity at that time, this killed the US machine tool sector. A second wave of de-industrialization occurred in the US between 2001 and 2009, culminating in the automaker bailout, from which the US did not recover. Research has pointed to investment in patents rather than in new capital equipment as a contributing factor; the opioid epidemic took off during this time period of 21st de-industrialization. At a more fundamental level and Lever offer four possible definitions of deindustrialization: A straightforward long-term decline in the output of manufactured goods or in employment in the manufacturing sector.

A shift from manufacturing to the service sectors, so that manufacturing has a lower share of total employment. Such a shift may occur if manufacturing employment is growing in absolute terms That manufactured goods comprise a declining share of external trade, so that there is a progressive failure to achieve a sufficient surplus of exports over imports to maintain an economy in external balance A continuing state of balance of trade deficit that accumulates to the extent that a country or region is unable to pay for necessary imports to sustain further production of goods, thus initiating a further downward spiral of economic decline. Theories that predict or explain de-industrialization have a long intellectual lineage. Rowthorn argues; this theory argues that technological innovation enables more efficient means of production, resulting in increased physical productivity, i.e. a greater output of use value per unit of capital invested. In parallel, technological innovations replace people with machinery, the organic composition of capital increases.

Assuming only labor can produce new additional value, this greater physical output embodies a smaller value and surplus value. The average rate of industrial profit therefore declines in the longer term. Rowthorn and Wells distinguish between de-industrialization explanations that see it as a positive process of, for example, maturity of the economy, those that associate de-industrialization with negative factors like bad economic performance, they suggest de-industrialization may be a cause of poor economic performance. Pitelis and Antonakis suggest that, to the extent that manufacturing is characterized by higher productivity, this leads, all other things being equal, to a reduction in relative cost of manufacturing products, thus a reduction in the relative share of manufacturing. Moreover, to the extent that manufacturing firms downsize through, e.g. outsourcing, contracting out, etc. this reduces manufacturing share without negatively influencing the economy. Indeed, it has positive effects, provided such actions increase firm productivity and performance.

George Reisman identified inflation as a contributor to de-industrialization. In his analysis, the process of fiat money inflation distorts the economic calculations necessary to operate capital-intensive manufacturing enterprises, makes the investments necessary for sustaining the operations of such enterprises unprofitable. Institutional arrangements have contributed to de-industrialization such as economic restructuring. With breakthroughs in transportation and information technology, a globalized economy that encouraged foreign direct investment, capital mobility and labor migration, new economic theory's emphasis on specialized factor endowments, manufacturing moved to lower-cost sites and in its place service sector and financial agglomerations concentrated in urban areas; the term de-industrialization crisis has been used to describe the decline of labor-intensive industry in a number of countries and the flight of jobs away from cities. One example is labor-intensive manufacturing. After free-trade agreements were instituted with less developed nations in the 1980s and 1990s, labor-intensive manufacturers relocated production facilities to third world countries with much lower wages and lower standards.

In addition, technological inventions that required less manual labor, such as industrial robots, eliminated many manufacturing jobs.

It was an happy marriage, her Life is sometimes quoted in support of the proposition that sexual congress within the institution of marriage reflects spiritual unities as well: At the moment when the two are united in one flesh, there is present in them a single and similar operation of the Holy Spirit: when they are linked together in each other's arms in an external unity, to say, a physical unity, this indivisible action of the Holy Spirit inflames them with a powerful interior love directed towards celestial realities.

Together they built the church of Herzfeld, sometimes recorded as Hirutveldun. She was the mother of Warin, the abbot of Corvey from 826 to 856, Count Cobbo the Elder, Addila or Mathilde, the abbess of Herzfeld, she was left a widow at a young age. The available biographies of Saint Ida report that her husband died in 811, he was buried on the south side of the Herzfeld church. She built a portico over his grave, where she lived a life devoted to prayer and works of charity. Among her reported acts of kindness were filling a stone coffin with food each day giving it to the poor. Ida died 4 September 825 and was buried at the church in Herzfeld, which became the first pilgrimage site in Westphalia. In 2011 the pilgrim Church of St. Ida in Herzfeld was designated a minor basilica. In Herzfeld, the folk festival of "Ida Week" is held every year in September in memory of the saint. During the week, the bones of the saints are carried through the village in a solemn procession; the Vita sanctae Idae Hertzfeldensis written in 980, by the monk Uffing of the Abbey of Werden, focuses on her exemplary life, including suffering endured in divine trust.

She was canonized on 26 November 980. Saint Ida is the patron saint of the poor and the weak, she is depicted either as carrying a church or with a dove hovering over her head. During the 32-year war between the Saxons and the Franks, Ida extended her protection to the Saxons in their; the deer with which Ida is portrayed represents the Saxons, who are besieged by the Franks. Today the deer is in the coat of arms of Herzfeld
