An article from the Washington Post today suggests that the economic recovery is not going as smoothly as we would like. The story cites a slowdown in job growth, home prices and manufacturing, among other things. (Click here to see the story.)
That said, it’s important to note that differences exist from one city to the next, and by region. That is explained in this story from USA Today about declining unemployment in many metro areas (click to link).
Implications: We all love hearing about the economic recovery. But depending on what report or which pundit you listen to, the experts seemingly continue to send mixed messages. That’s why listening closely to your customers remains a wise and prudent thing to do.
