Episode 215: 2018 ISM Forecast Strong and Robust with Few Negatives

Tim Fiore, Committee Chair of the ISM’s Manufacturing Report on Business(R) and Anthony Nieves, Committee Chair of the ISM’s Non-Manufacturing Report on Business(R) join Manufacturing Talk Radio co-hosts Lew Weiss and Tim Grady to discuss their semi-annual forecast for 2018, which, by all indications, appears strong and robust for both sectors of the economy. 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.
