The Real Economy
A monthly publication for middle market business leaders
THE REAL ECONOMY
The US middle market makes up nearly 40 percent of the country’s economy and employs one-third of its workforce, yet this economic growth engine is often overlooked. As the leading provider of assurance, tax and consulting services to middle market businesses, RSM wants to change the conversation.
The Real Economy is a monthly publication to help the middle market anticipate and address the unique issues and challenges facing their businesses and the industries in which they operate. Written by our chief economist, Joe Brusuelas, and including the insights of professionals throughout the firm, The Real Economy is RSM's answer to making sure the unique needs and opportunities of this important segment of our economy are given the attention they deserve.
We examine the relationship between economic slowdown and manufacturing contraction and offer a new RSM Manufacturing Outlook Index.
