It’s easy to get caught up in day-to-day activities and miss the economic environment in which we must operate our businesses. Like it or not, economic forces impact our businesses — negatively and positively. Knowing something about the economic environment and economics in general brings power. It arms us to make decisions that can strengthen our businesses and take advantage of trends, even during challenging times.
