Editorial Reviews


“Alan and Brian Beaulieu are rare and valuable economists.  Their analyses and prognoses are easy to understand, useable by business leaders, and (best of all) correct and prescient.  They guide us from macro-economic trends to our individual action plans.  And with their intelligence, humor and clarity, the Beaulieu brothers make our journey enjoyable and rewarding.”
Rafael Pastor ?Chairman of the Board & CEO, Vistage International, Inc.

“There are changes coming, let’s get ready for them, and let’s be as profitable as we can be.  The methods ITR® employs are understandable and more importantly, applicable at the company level.”
Ron Schreibman, Senior Vice President-Strategic Direction, National Association of Wholesaler-Distributors (NAW)

“Alan Beaulieu is a highly-regarded economist who successfully predicted the latest recession and housing downturn almost three years before it came to pass. His years of study on how to spot business cycles, the development of leading economic indicators, and management objectives during the business cycle have been of invaluable help to Parker Hannifin and to many other companies.
Marwan Kashkoush, Executive Vice President, Sales, Marketing and Operations Support, Parker Hannifin Corporation

“Having integrated Brian Beaulieu’s economic modeling and business cycle forecasting process into our business planning process we were able to forecast the last recession, plan our strategy, and thrive through the downturn.  We are now preparing for the upturn”
Tom Gendron, Chairman and CEO, Woodward Governor Company

More About the Author

One of the country's most informed economists, Alan Beaulieu is a principal of the ITR Economics where he serves as President. Since 1990, he has been consulting with companies who have a domestic and global perspective on how to forecast, plan, and increase their profits based on business cycle trend analysis. Alan is also the Senior Economic Advisor to the NAW and the Chief Economist for HARDI. Alan specializes in applied research regarding business-cycle trend analysis, growth-cycle trend analysis, and the utilization of cyclical analysis at a practical business level. He is a featured speaker at corporate and trade association meetings both in the U.S. and overseas and makes about 150 personal appearances each year. He has spoken to thousands of business leaders in manufacturing, healthcare, distribution, real estate, construction, and technology forums.

From the early 1980s to the early 1990s, he was also an adjunct faculty member at Daniel Webster College in Nashua, NH, a position he loved and that prepared him to get business leaders to understand and apply business cycle economics. Pronouncements from the ITR Economics and/or Mr. Beaulieu have appeared in/on: the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, USA Today, Knight Ridder News Services, Business Week, Associated Press, The Washington Times, CBS Radio, CNN Radio, Sirius talk radio, KABC, NPR affiliate WLRN and numerous other outlets.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
this book has some great insights into financial analysis. in particular, it is especially useful for understanding what exactly the key financial metrics are (i.e., separating the less useful lagging indicators from the true leaders), and how to find and exploit this information. where this book fails miserably is in the self promotion. the authors can't seem to congratulate themselves enough on their brilliance, or pat their own backs hard enough to celebrate their accomplishments. its almost nauseating at times. however, the core information is very useful, just read quickly and ignore the bravado.

The book was well written and delivered a message based on both experience and reality as well as providing a basis to have credibility in the forecasts it discusses.

This is a good overview of the cyclical nature of economics and trends. It is worth reading to get an overview of how the economy impacts business. Overall, I find these authors very effective at tracking and projecting the general economy (outside the scope of this book).
