The Econ­omy Min­istry said Fri­day that in­dus­trial pro­duc­tion dropped 0.5 per­cent in Oc­to­ber over Septem­ber af­ter ad­just­ing for sea­sonal and cal­en­dar fac­tors. The drop erased mod­est gains made in the last two months. De­spite the de­cline, ING Economist Carsten Brzeski says the lat­est fig­ures still “sup­port mod­est op­ti­mism.” –
