Course Description

During uncertain times, it is critical to gain an understanding of what is most likely to happen to the economy. This is an essential part of the business planning process.

Economic indicators are those often-voluminous statistics released by government agencies, non-profit organizations, and even private companies.

They provide measurements for evaluating the health of our economy, including the latest business cycles, consumer spending, inflation, housing, and so on. Various economic indicators are released quarterly, monthly, weekly, and even daily.

The Consumer Price Index (CPI) is a measure that examines the weighted average of prices of a basket of consumer goods and services, such as transportation, food, and medical care. It is calculated by taking price changes for each item in the predetermined basket of goods and averaging them.

Attendees of the CPE course will learn about price indices and inflation.
