From the Paper:

"Early in 2011, the GDP growth rate for the fourth quarter of 2010 was revised downwards, to 2.8% annualized growth, down from 3.2% (Indiviglio, 2011). The news shook financial markets - the economic recovery was not as strong as expected, and the expectations were not that high to begin with. The Congressional Budget Office, which publishes a comprehensive set of economic forecasts, confirms this view. The economic recovery is expected to be slow and take place over the course of years. This has significant implications for American businesses, in particular larger businesses whose enterprise is driven in part by macroeconomic considerations. Whereas small businesses can sometimes grow simply by outperforming their closest competitors, larger businesses are often more dependent on general economic conditions and their response to those conditions for their success. This paper is going to focus on those general economic conditions, beginning with an overview of the current economic environment, monetary policy, fiscal policy and the external (non-US) economic environment. All of these different facets of the macroeconomic environment will have an impact on large American businesses going forward, and those impacts will be analyzed in the second part of this report, leading to some valuable conclusions."
