We mentioned last week how the new “hot meme” in econ circles was that the fading recovery was already picking back up a bit.The rebound in Japanese data definitely supports this.

And today’s Chicago PMI supports this.

As does this Kansas City Fed announcement, via Calculated Risk:

The Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City released the June Manufacturing Survey today. According to Chad Wilkerson, vice president and economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, the survey revealed that growth in Tenth District manufacturing activity rebounded solidly in June after a brief slowdown last month, and producers remained generally optimistic about future activity.

“Factories in the region basically resumed their solid pace of growth from earlier in the year, following some disruptions in May,” said Wilkerson. “Also, hiring plans remain fairly solid for the second half of the year.”

Seeing a clear improvement from last month? Can’t argue with that.
