NALC 2017: Economy At The Midpoint—A Micro View Of How The Economy Is Affecting Us
Chris Kuehl, Ph.D. asks, now that we are past the first 100 days of the new administration, what do we know and when did we know it? This was to be the year that infrastructure took center stage and that Obamacare vanished. We were going to see big changes in trade and taxes, and regulation would be rolled back. Growth was going to be double what it was last year. Did we get what we expected? How is it affecting your industry or businesses? What do we have to look forward to for the rest of the year, and how can we use strategic foresight and planning to be better prepared?
