50 years since what?

I was amazed to see coverage of the steel industry in the PG.  Then I realized it was just a wire service piece. But here is another AP story running that is actually kind of stunning:

AP has a headline: US steel exports exceeded imports in August

Title line explains: "A steel industry trade group said the United States exported more steel than it imported in August for the first time in more than 50 years."...  even though there seems some dispute over the data.. it's still remarkable that we could even be suggesting the idea that the US is a net exporter of steel.
