Riding the Crest
Presented by Alan Beaulieu
Tuesday, September 24, 2019 (During the Opening General Session)
Tariffs, taxes and telling leading indicators all add up to a shift in the business cycle in the latter half of 2019 and into the first half of 2020. We are going to look at what they all mean. What is short-term in nature and what is longer-term in nature? What do they all add up to? We will go over it all so that you can plan with confidence for the remainder of 2019 and for 2020.
There is another rising trend coming. We think it is vitally important that you understand what to look for and how that upside cycle is likely to take shape.
It is all about maximizing your bottom line, be it in a slowing economy, contraction or expansion. If you know what to expect, you can plan accordingly.
In this session Alan Beaulieu will dive into the answers to these questions:
- What are the leading indicators telling us?
- What do they mean for the performance plastics industry?
- What can we expect from the tax cuts and from the tariffs for our industry?
- What should you do with all this information?
