The outstanding issues of tax reform and regulatory reform appear to favor both sectors by moderating or relieving the pressures of the previous administration, which has encouraged both sectors to become more aggressive towards preparing for business growth. Tune in and then delve into the December 2017 Semi-Annual Forecast for Manufacturing and Non-Manufacturing published by the Institute for Supply Management.

S10-E15: Breaking News: ISM Rolls Up Slightly Lower at 58.7

ISM’s Tim Fiore, Committee Chair of the Manufacturing Report on Business(R) covers the October ISM number, still strong at 58.7 but slightly lower than September that hit 60.8. The 60’s tend to be unsustainable for long periods of time unless the economy is overheating, which then typically ends badly. The 50’s are more solid for the long-term health and strength of the economy, so 58.7 is a solid number in the upper range that reflects the 3.0 GDP just reported.
