Join us for some straight talk about the economy and why you should be excited about the 2017 forecast. Join us as we welcome back acclaimed economist, Alan Beaulieu, for the seventh time.
With the presidential election fresh in our minds, Alan shared with us the potential impact it has on his forecasts from last year, and going forward. He also discussed what we can expect for GDP and the stock market, the effects of the proposed $15/hr minimum wage legislation, and its potential impact on unemployment. And, as always, he gave an analysis of the implications of Fed policy and potential interest rate changes on your business. There are a lot of myths about the US economy, and Beaulieu looks into the ones that matter most to the manufacturing community in Ohio and the country as a whole. Together, we will see what the future holds for manufacturing and key markets in the year to come.
Alan Beaulieu is one of the most informed economists in the country, providing economic forecasts with 94.7% accuracy so companies can improve their performance and profits. He is a principal at ITR Economics, the Senior Economic Advisor to the National Association of Wholesalers, Chief Economist for numerous international trade associations, and a noted author and speaker. Alan co-wrote 3 books with his brother Brian: “Make Your Move” and “Prosperity in the Age of Decline”. The third book, “But I Want It”, was also co-authored by Dawn Beaulieu. It is a children’s book that brings economic lessons to youngsters. The proceeds from “But I Want It” go entirely to charity.
