Change is a constant and often at a much slower pace than we like. The recovery in the U.S. economy is expanding at a steady but mild pace as post-recession recoveries go. Election year politics bombard us with negative sound bites. Headline news swirling around events in Europe have fed market volatility and stoked uncertainty. China’s growth is the slowest in three years. Brazil’s economy is in recession. Feels like another recession could hit at any time. True or false?
Jeff Dietrich, from ITR, returns for the Fall 2012 GFA meeting to bring his informative update on the economic scene, with ITR’s perceptive and reliable assessment
of the current state of the US and global economies. Topics will include the signifi cance of the election on the economy, the strength of Europe’s patchwork relief, inflation projections, consumer trends, new orders, and when to expect another downturn. The focus will be on industries related to GFA members and what steps should be taken to remain profitable going forward.
