Recession proof: How to navigate a turbulent economy

You may not know it, but where the economy is on the business cycle impacts your life in a big way. While everything may seem okay when the economy is booming, the cycle will inevitably turn and a period of slow growth or even recession will follow.

Recession may negatively impact your job prospects and future salary. Recession may send your business into a tailspin. Recession may also harm your investments, including your retirement savings.

That’s why it’s important for everyone—business owners, investors, and employees alike—to understand where to find and how to interpret the best economic leading indicators.

Economist, author, and investor Peter Sainsbury explains why each indicator is important, finishing with career and investment tips on how you might prepare for the next recession. Take five minutes every day, and get the data you need to make better professional and financial decisions.
