|Economic Data: Putting it into Practice|
Presentation: Thursday, MArch 3, 2016
Can a business obtain and maintain a competitive advantage through a better understanding of economic and industry trends?
How should macroeconomic analysis affect microeconomic decisions? How should one go about making sense of the cacophony of data, and how can one identify the trends and data that are relevant?
This session takes some of the observations of the earlier general sessions and seeks to apply them to specific business challenges, while drawing broader observations about the role that macroeconomic can play in business management.
