Industrial production rises in December

Today, the Federal Reserve released their monthly read of industrial production and capacity utilization showing an increase in December with total industrial production rising 0.26% since November and rising 2.25% above the level seen in December 2011.

Capacity utilization also rose 0.12% from November and climbing 0.61% above the level seen in November of 2011 to stand at 78.78%

It's important to recognize that though the "recovery" is well over two years old, both industrial production and capacity utilization are notably below the peaks set in late 2007.
