You may not know it, but where the economy is on the business cycle impacts your life in a big way. While everything may seem ok when the economy is booming, the cycle will inevitably turn and a period of slow growth or even recession will follow.
Recession may negatively impact your job prospects and future salary. Recession may send your business into a tail spin. Recession may also harm your investments including your retirement savings.
That’s why it’s important for everyone, business owners, investors, and employees alike-to understand where to find and how to interpret the best economic leading indicators.
