... I read an article a few years ago about how many American steel mills are converting over to making specialty metals for very limited markets. You can't call that a healthy business plan, but apparently that's all that they can do given the triple whammy that government, unions, and short-sighted consumers are dealing the industry.
It's called "Niche Marketing", and it's a viable way of staying in business. Sort of like specialty restaurants.

While I have to agree that we need businesses that can supply the specialty products, we will not have a national economy that works without American suppliers of the things we use on a daily basis. This is not a healthy economic model.
