Economist to speak in Dayton

DAYTON — The Dayton Region Manufacturers Association (DRMA) will present “Riding the Crest” featuring Brian Beaulieu, a nationally recognized economist, April 11, starting at 7:30 a.m. at the Holiday Inn Dayton Fairborn, across from Wright State University.

Beaulieu, CEO of ITR Economics, will give manufacturers and other businesses insight on how to forecast, plan and increase their profits based on business cycle trend analyses. ITR Economics predicts future economic trends with a 94.7 percent accuracy rate and 60 years of correct calls.

According to Beaulieu, “Economic trends are shifting. Seeing those shifts, understanding them and setting realistic expectations for the remainder of 2019 and for 2020 will require managers to be keenly aware of the changes taking place. Thinking and planning for the changes before they are on our doorstep is key to being successful as we go through the business cycle.”

Beaulieu has spent more than 25 years traveling around the U.S. and Canada speaking to business owners as an informed economic consultant. Beaulieu is co-author of the books, “Prosperity in the Age of Decline,” “Make Your Move” and the children’s book, “But I Want It.” He is currently researching a fourth book in addition to conducting applied research into setting the gold standard for business cycle forecasting in the equity markets.

Doors open at 7:30 a.m. for registration and breakfast; the presentation begins at 8:30 a.m. and ends at 10 a.m. The price is $75 for DRMA members and $100 for non-members. For information, visit
