Introduction to Navigating the Downturn Economy Series
Surviving and Thriving in a Downturn Economy
Americans are facing an economic challenge unlike any most of them have ever seen. Unemployment is at record levels, the stock market fluctuates with alarming volatility, and most people are hunkered down. Recognizing this situation, I thought it a good idea to look at what some business experts are saying about strategies to survive,even thrive in these turbulent waters. This week’s posts will focus on summaries of the April, 2009 issue of the Harvard Business Review (HBR) because several articles in this issue provide some practical, research-based solutions for navigating in these choppy waters. If you don’t subscribe, I strongly suggest at least buying this April issue and reading it closely.
