Staying in front of the business cycle is essential in today's competitive marketplace.

Let us begin with what is most important to you. Knowing where economy is headed allows you to make smarter, more confident decisions. Yet corporate leaders and money managers have to navigate through a minefield of unprecedented global hazards.

The destructive shocks of the past four years -- the pandemic, Russia's war in Ukraine, global supply chain disruptions, China's post-Covid economic struggles, and the explosive violence in the Middle East -- are dramatically transforming the economic and geopolitical order. No industry has been untouched by the changes taking place. Every firm, regardless of size, is now experimenting, exploring, testing out novel strategies to see how they can function effectively and profitably in this new -- and still evolving -- business landscape. But it is no easy task. We now live in a crisis-prone world economy.

So how do you manage a company and use its resources productively in a world that is increasingly buffeted by economic, political and military shocks?

The Economic Outlook Group

This is where The Economic Outlook Group can help. Our firm has an established track for correctly anticipating turning points in the economy. The Wall Street Journal ranked Bernard Baumohl, our chief economist, the most accurate forecaster in a major survey taken in 2019. Bernard and our forecasting team accomplished this by formulating the best forward-looking US and international economic indicators, and by monitoring in real time the rapidly changing geopolitical dynamics around the globe. Our aim is to advise clients not just on the health and path of the economy, but to identify emerging threats that can potentially imperil their business, disrupt supply chain networks and destabilize capital markets. In essence, we assess the risks and opportunities ahead.

(2) ECONOMIC INTELLIGENCE SEMINARS: We believe everyone should be proficient at using economic data to assess current business conditions and glean important clues about future trends. Our private seminars teach attendees how to locate and analyze the most important leading economic indicators, and then utilize this rich source of information to make sound business judgements. The insights gained help corporate managers make smarter decisions on asset allocation, pricing, consumer demand, hiring needs, capital expenditures, advertising and foreign trade. We are also licensed to provide CPE credits for this course.

These seminars are customized to suit the time constraints and location of each client. Please see our section on Seminars for additional details.
