Guests from the Seidman College of Business share their happenings with us every month. Today, Kevin Callison, Economics Professor, talks about the results released at the West Michigan Health Care Economic Forcast Event held on January 13.
The west Michigan economy slowed during the month of December. You can chalk it up as a holiday slowdown. As we enter January and the new year, what is the outlook among purchasing managers surveyed each month for the Supply Management Research Report?
“The Stock Market is in record territory right now.” Brian G. Long is director of Supply Management Research in the Seidman College of Business at Grand Valley State University. “This means that business confidence has improved and our local number for business confidence are as good as they’ve been all year long.”
