Course Description

While key indicators show the United States and much of the world is in a period of economic expansion, a tremendous amount of uncertainty and risk still pose challenges for organizations across the country. Meanwhile, information being presented in the news and other media outlets is often wrought with subjective commentary, making it difficult to assess the true impact of certain policies. This course is designed to explore current and ongoing economic issues facing the U.S. and the world, looking at official source data to allow the CPA or financial professional to objectively analyze possible ramifications for their organization.

Learning Objectives

Upon successful completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand key economic indicators across the U.S. and what they may mean for your organization and financial forecasting.
  • Analyze current budget deficits at the federal, state, and local levels and the potential impact on the business environment and revenue recognition.

  • Analyze current national and international legislative issues, with a focus on data and financial privacy and new accounting pronouncements, and the potential impact on businesses across the globe.
