Is this due to cheap money on Mars?

Yeah, global manufacturing 'as a share of gdp' might be declining, but seeing as there are more and more people wanting to buy more and more stuff, it can't be declining in total.

"In reality, the chart above shows that the decline in U.S. manufacturing as share of GDP between 1970 and 2010 is a really a global phenomenon as the entire world becomes increasingly a services-intensive economy. "

Hopefully soon we will all have those printers that can make objects.

The share is declining because due to outsourced jobs to China stuff has become much cheaper overall.
