What is going on with the economy, and how can I position my floral business accordingly? Is now a good time to hire? Or buy a big-ticket item for the shop?
Since the days of Reaganomics, every president’s economic agenda has been monikered accordingly. Mick Mulvaney, director of the Office of Management and Budget who recently rebranded “Trumponomics” as “MAGAnomics,” a play on “Make America Great Again,” says President Donald Trump’s agenda promotes 3 percent economic growth. That has pundits, economists and business owners asking, is that possible?
“While the hubris of the stock market may make it seem like prosperity is upon us, there are some signals that we need to pay attention to in today’s economic conditions,” said floral industry financial analyst Charlie Hall, Ph.D., professor and Ellison Chair in the Department of Horticultural Sciences at Texas A&M University.
Hall provides a nonpartisan look at “The Economic Effects of Trumponomics,”a free WebBlast from the Society of American Florists on Aug. 9.
“Several economic indicators point to relatively stable conditions over the next 18 months, holding all other things constant, of course,” Hall said. “So, what is the appropriate strategic response on the part of floral industry businesses at the moment?”
