Economy: As Obama Meets to Discuss Growth, 10 Sectors Are Sick or Dying
President Obama will visit North Carolina today, meeting with his Jobs and Competitiveness Council to discuss ways to promote U.S. job growth, bolster America's global competitiveness and strengthen the economy.

Some sectors of the economy, according to market research company IBISWorld, could use strengthening: An IBISWorld report identifies 10 U.S. industries, which, if not actually dead, are headed that way fast.

Some, such as manufactured housing, theoretically could get better and enjoy a healthy future. Others, such as record stores, cannot: They might just as well strap on a "Do Not Resuscitate" sign and pull down the shades.
