    Google car graveyard. We don't need all of this production during good times. Sadly when we by cars we are also paying for this car's sister who's still in the grave and will remain there never to be sold. Cars aren't fast fashion. The way we measure productivity is crazy. Besides, some pmi's will always be overblown. There is no good ending to this, many of the furloughs are permanent.

    How do they get access to this data? Do companies willingly give this data to economists or perhaps some aggregator?

    Economy was already slowing down before corona hit, stock markets are not indicator of the reality. Its going to be L type recovery and will not return to pre corona level until end of 2021.

    Don't worry…Manufacturers will make Durable product non-durable! So it will break down soon and your only option would be to buy a new one!
