Economic Overview; Changing Channels Not Just for TV

Dr. Joe tiptoes through the economic data, discusses the nature of efficiency and expansion, and then pontificates about channels that are not of the TV kind. Then he explains why a new high in a stock index is not what it seems. Did we really say tiptoe? Where are the tulips?

Dr. Joe, thanks for the ongoing thought provoking ideas that can lead some to be sick and while others are inspired, see opportunities and grow after it.

I continue to see an entrepreneurial mindset as a winning attitude and framework for planning and execution. Big or small the entrepreneur develops a strategy, gets others excited about it, and develops multiple profit centers instead of focusing on too few. Part of that development is researching new things while also deciding when to let others go.

Growing after opportunity includes developing relationships with others. Some can be new partners to offer new products and services while others may include the competition because sometimes it just may be the right thing to do.

Please keep teaching me economics and business opportunities and I'll keep sharing the passion to help people and their businesses grow.
