Each of you need to find a current news article from a reputable, business-focused source (e.g., Wall Street Journal, Fortune, Kiplinger’s, or Forbes) that illustrates a political or governmental force that impacts your industry. Politics can be at the local, regional, national or international level. As we rely increasingly on global markets and governments for success, we also need to consider our relationships with these entities as well as their fiscal and monetary policies and their overall stability.
In this blog, post the link to the article and your analysis of what impact the specific force will have on your industry within the upcoming year. Please do not repeat articles, unless you are focusing on the impact in a different industry.
