Fiscal Reality from One of the country’s most informed economists 1486_ 1/13/14 - For a little shot of reality, we are talking with Alan Beaulieu during his annual economic forecast at the ACG Denver 2014 Opening Luncheon. (Note: We've interviewed Alan several times over the years - be sure to check out his view of the future then and now.) ITR Economics focuses on the U.S. and European economy with offices here and there. Today Alan is talking about fiscal reality, a refreshing look at life as it is. "We started with the Affordable Health Care Act. You may be hearing the administration saying because of Obama Care they have slowed down the rate of rise in healthcare - you'll be seeing headlines about that in numerous sources. Keep in mind that it is a very negligible change and the numbers they're citing are before the healthcare act really came into being, 2014 is the real year of the healthcare act. So the slowdown really has to do with the softness we had in the economy in 2013 than it does with anything else, just a normal part of the economy. We think the healthcare act could be a headwind for consumers if the administration is right and millions of healthy young individuals go to the exchange." One of the country’s most informed economists, Alan Beaulieu, is a principal of ITR Economics™ where he serves as President. He leads the company’s European office and serves as chief economist for numerous U.S. and European trade associations. He is co-author of Make Your Move, a book on profiting in business cycle changes, and is a contributing editor for Industry Week magazine...Listen for more...

That's one of the greatest things about the cloud 1640_ 11/24/14 - Keynote speaker for Defrag 2014 David Barnes, program director for Emerging Internet Technology, IBM Software Group Strategy, has an interesting job (not to mention title). David said, "We look out to the future 12, 18 to 24 months, see what's happening out in the world and we grow technology based on that. Then we take it to business, to customers, prove its value, and probably adjust it to make it whatever they like. And, once we prove the value, then we take it to IBM and it makes its way into a product and it steers the direction of the company. You can have it running in 40 data centers around the world, and you only pay based on what you do. IBM Watson Services for Bluemix, A cloud platform for the world's ideas, sign up for free!

Service that brings together car owners and drivers 1573_ 6/30/14 - Lucy Sanders, CEO for the National Center for Women and Information Technology or NCWIT along with Larry Nelson, Director of w3w3® Media Network interviewed Robin Chase who is founder and CEO of Buzzcar, a service that brings together car owners and drivers in a car sharing marketplace. Buzzcar.com empowers individuals to take control of their mobility, without looking to governments or big businesses for solutions. Robin is also founder and former CEO of Zipcar, the largest car sharing company in the world, and GoLoco, an online ridesharing community. Robin explained, "We all want to get more out of what we own or have already invested in, or, conversely, to pay only for what we use. Buzzcar, takes the second most expensive asset individuals own (second to their house), that sits idle about 22 out of every 24 hours, and enables it to be shared with neighbors and friends resulting in a much more efficient use of those cars. No matter what you are selling, it has got to be put in a way that appeals to that person (company, government)'s self interest. Getting the brand absolutely right was one of the keys to Zipcar's success. We were financially smart, cool, hip, urban, fun. If you live in the city, who doesn't want to be like that?" Robin offers some great advice for entrepreneurs...listen...
