According to the recently released survey from the National Association for Business Economics (NABE), 10% of economists see a recession occurring this year, 42% see a recession in 2020, and 25% believe it will happen in 2021. “There is a reason analysts suggested holding FAANG (Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Netflix and Google) stocks through the last recession,” says West. “Our research exposes how the FAANG companies use data, strategies and tools to drive long-term growth, even during recessions.”

West and his team spent 15,000 hours diving into academic journals, company case studies, and classic business literature to produce actionable solutions for long-term growth. Executives, innovators and change agents can now quickly understand and apply industry-leading insights in their own companies. The free resource includes:

“This is an unprecedented era of rapid change – a time of cascading, disruptive technologies emerging alongside economic uncertainty. At the same time, the pace of change in most companies is far too slow, putting Americans’ livelihoods at risk,” West explains. “This resource helps companies spend less time learning and more time growing their business.”
