Please Join Us for this atypical important 2nd webinar in the new -
APICS-Chicago Economic Outlook Update Series

Rapidly evolving unprecedented events are causing abrupt shifts to the economic landscape. Markets crash in weeks and make new highs within months, shipment volume fades precipitously and makes a sudden return, forclosures loom as housing prices move up, all while unemployment numbers vacillate, but remain significantly high. Typically, pundits would be on every network connecting dots as part of their in depth analysis of these happenings, but this is not a typical year in any sense - especially with the great amount of news coverage devoted to political events leading up to the election combined with the news coverage of covid-19 related issues.

While we are all concerned with the upcoming election and the effects of the ongoing pandemic, to support informed decision making people engaged in business activities need to be aware of changing economic factors. APICS-Chicago's new Economic Update Series is designed to cut through the clutter to bring Supply Chain Professionals timely recaps of economic activitiy with a decided slant toward effects on the end-to-end Supply Chain.  Nov. 2018, at UIC, Navalny's chief of staff, Leonid Volkov with Dr. Stuart Twice a month, in 15-to-20 minute segments, Dr. Edward F. Stuart will provide his take on the activities that are changing the economy and affecting our economic future.   Having said that we will focus on Economic issues as they influence the Supply Chain, the Thursday, September 17th segment will diverge from our stated format to take advantage of Dr. Stuart's specific knowledge of an event that has been in the news, but an event that has not had full reporting of the relevant details - and particularly, of the importance of the details to the U.S. The event being referred to is the poisoning of Russian dissident Alexei Navalny, which Dr. Stuart has knowledge of through personal contacts (picture to the right - UIC, Nov. 2018, Navalny's chief of staff, Leonid Volkov with Dr. Stuart) . Preceding Dr. Stuart's reporting we will still include our brief recap of Supply Chain related economic indicators.

You may recognize Dr. Edward F. Stuart, Professor Emeritus, Economics, Northeastern Illinois University (NEIU), from the WTTW program, Chicago Tonight, where Dr. Stuart is often called on to provide expert background on economic issues. Dr. Stuart earned his Ph.D. in Economics at the University of Oklahoma where his specialties were International Economics and Russian Studies. Dr. Stuart has participated in educational conferences in Russia, was a Guest Professor at the Urals State Pedagogical University in Katerinburg, Russia, was a Guest Professor in China in 2016, and has been a Guest Professor at Salzburg College in Salzburg, Austria. Last, year, Dr. Stuart completed his audio / video course, Capitalism vs. Socialism: Comparing Economic Systems, which has become available for download from The Great Courses.
