By Dr. Joe Webb
Published: August 2, 2007
June's printing shipments were almost identical to those of June 2006, at $8.5 billion (current dollars). For the first half, shipments are at $49.8 billion, up +1.7%.
Once adjusted for inflation, shipments are down for the month almost -3%, and down about
-1.5% for the first half.
Full details will be in my column on Monday, and in our regular Monthly Shipments Report, to be released shortly.
