Miller’s Monday Morning Message
presented by ACM Consulting Inc.
Andrew Miller on operational excellence, strategy, life balance and everything in between
Toronto – November 25, 2013
The Dow Jones stock market index pushed above 16,000 this week, just continuing to show how thriving the US economy is. The job market is improving and we see the number of company acquisitions and the number of initial public offerings going up. This is a good sign. What might be the best sign is that all of this is happening despite an ineffective government. The US government is spending its time with partisan bickering, finger pointing, and ineffective implementation of government strategies. This may actually be a blessing for organizations because it keeps the government focused elsewhere and allows the free market system to run its course. This may be a good model for governments to follow in the future….set up rules and regulations to ensure fair trade and competition. Enforce those rules, and then let organizations and the economy operate freely within them. That is smart government. Contrast that to what is happening in many of the other major economies around the world and the US is looking awfully good right now, despite the behaviour of its political leaders.
