The Changing Economy: How Companies, Individuals and Policy Makers Must Adapt to a Structural Shift in Labor Markets
The American economy is in the middle of a structural shift. Just as when the U.S. struggled with the painful transition from an agrarian-led economy to a manufacturing-led economy, Regan argues that we are currently feeling the effects of a move from a manufacturing economy into a service economy.
So, how does a society transition its workers for the future economy? And how do companies best position themselves for growth? Regan examines the industries of the future, providing insight into the kinds of technology and services businesses that will generate future growth while also addressing the policies needed to enable the U.S. economy to compete.
Election 2016: What the Race for the White House Means for Wall Street, Business, and You
Today, middle class Americans hardly feel prosperous. And, it’s no wonder. The U.S. economy is barely registering growth, while the corporate profits are weakening amid a stronger US dollar and challenged global economy. Adjusted for inflation, Americans’ wages are basically stuck where they were nearly two decades ago. With this kind of bleak economic backdrop, what are the policies Washington needs to do put in place to jumpstart our economy? And, which candidates that have the biggest shot at success in 2016? Regan handicaps the upcoming Presidential Election from an economic perspective—predicting how the economy, business, Wall Street and everyday Americans will fare under different leaders.
Currency Wars: The Unintended Consequence of a Strong U.S. Dollar
The U.S. economy is facing a predicament the Federal Reserve didn't
anticipate — a stronger than expected U.S. dollar. While a strong dollar is great in theory because it reduces the cost of foreign goods for American consumers (including commodities like oil), Regan argues that the stronger currency will have negative consequences for corporate earnings and the markets.
There's a QE bonanza going on across the globe with central banks in China, Japan, India, Russia and Turkey all aggressively trying to grow their economies and devalue their currencies. With the U.S. now one of the rare countries that's not cutting, nor enacting additional QE, investors are piling into the U.S. dollar.
Regan explains the challenged relationship the Fed now has with our currency, as the dollar may leave the Fed unable to move off its zero interest rate policy as early as many believe is necessary.
