Strategic and tactical planning is difficult, particularly as the future is at best uncertain and there are events pressuring the economy in multiple directions. The pressures can come from societal changes, global events, or government intervention. It is difficult to sail a boat from Boston to Key West without knowing which way the winds are blowing and what the prevailing currents are.

Business leaders, investors, managers, and others need accurate and substantiated information from which to make decisions. We need verifiable information to guide us at work, in our personal finances, in the voting booth, and as we plan for the future. We have dedicated our careers to providing that information, and in many ways this book is a culmination of our decades of research, applied economics, and, perhaps most importantly, listening to what is important to the tens of thousands of people we have interacted with over the years.

Our newest book will tackle issues that impact your business and your personal life. Analysis and understanding of these issues will provide clarity, confidence, and a perspective that should provide for greater prosperity.

Topics in the book that will enable successful planning and financial performance include:

  • Politics and economics
  • Labor
  • Modern Monetary Theory – Does it matter?
  • US economic growth is slowing – Why? And what does it mean for your future?
  • Income inequality
  • Impact of war
  • Disappearing middle class – What is the reality and the economic impact?
  • College and student loans – The problem with college debt, and alternative paths
  • Universal basic income – What does it do to the economy and to people?
  • Update on our 2030 outlook from our book, Prosperity in the Age of Decline

These subjects are presented in a straightforward and easy-to-digest manner. The insights are both understandable and immediately actionable. This is not an economic textbook filled with economic jargon; it is a book about economic issues that will change the way you look at the world.
