2010 New Year Update - Commentary

It was an unsustainable ride upward from 2000 to the zenith of 2007 which ended in a subsequent decline with the liquidity crisis of 2008. This was extreme capitalism gone terribly wrong and the whole world was, and still is, affected.

There are many articles and opinions on the topic but the common thread is that we need to stabilize our economy and cure the enormous disparity of income and wage earners. America needs to increase its savings, be more responsible, less gluttonous and must produce more product while adding tariffs to imported goods.

So how will all of this affect us and what effect will it have on our industry, businesses and personal lives? Businesses will survive by streamlining their operations and taking a more conservative approach to their market. They will benefit by seizing opportunities to invest in productivity tools and become increasingly leaner and more precise in their daily marketing. New energy and conservation based businesses will emerge. Companies dedicated to environmental sustainability will be at an advantage as they serve their markets while motivating their employees through improved opportunities and workplaces.

As difficult as our business climate has been, I remain confident that we will emerge from of this crisis a stronger nation, with a renewed awareness and appreciation for what we have and who we are. Keep the faith.
