May you live in Interesting Times

Posted: 08/23/2009

We have a vision of Ms Korth and the folks at IRN trying to prepare this quarterly update summary and forecast for the North American Automotive Industry. That vision involves finding out a fact. Confirming it. Evaluating it. Typing it. Hitting the return key, and then hearing a new development which requires rewriting what was just written…

At least, there is no shortage of material!

This report from IRN confirms that the rate of change in several of the important economic factors needed for the precision machining business to recover is slowly coming around. Consumer confidence, a turnaround in single family home supply, pent up demand for new autos, possible cash for clunkers legislation, and the fact that we are getting closer to knowing the ultimate fate of GM and Chrysler are all potential bellwethers of an upturn in automotive sales.

There are plenty of facts and data in this report to help you with your strategic “Sensemaking,” as we navigate this VUCA (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity) economic environment.

This Quarterly Update and Summary produced by IRN is a Business Intelligence Service provided for the use of members of PMPA – See link to report below.
