Economics is not about the past but about the present. While we take advantageof past economic history, businesses, government and individuals respond to currenteconomic developments. Managing a business and economic decisions are not about thepast. It is about the present and the future. While it is important to know how successfulstrategies of the past worked, it is even more important for individuals, businessmanagers and marketers to keep up with the growing needs of consumers and clientsalong developmental stages.As it is emphasized in contemporary news sources and economic textbooks, needsand wants change. Keeping up with the needs of your patrons, customers, and clients isthe only way to stay profitable in any business. Purchases and services are aimed atsolving current problems.This article illustrates the fact that, in order for today’s business investments tosucceed, economic decisions of what to produce and what to market are made based oncurrent economic trends. In order for the salesperson to offer a customer appropriateitems, such would have been designed and formatted by the Research & Development,Manufacturing, and Shipping departments, according to current needs and requirements.Those designing and those selling are collaborators in the singular effort of meeting thecustomer’s needs. Customer satisfaction is the only winning formula in achievingbusiness success in the 21st century.The article makes clear the need to keep up with demographic trends anddevelopments among segments of the consuming public. While it may serve anymanager’s emotional needs to produce what they think the consumer needs, the only wayto be sure is to collect their (customers’) responses and see what makes sense. As hasbeen illustrated in our textbook and many other economic textbooks, there is a whole lotof work in today’s economic success: namely, necessarily offering goods and services indemand to remain profitable. While it may be open to debate, it may be necessary to saythat if a business organization, or any organization for that matter, is not successful inforecasting economic trends and customer preferences, that organization may be doomed.“If there is no marketing or exchange, there is no profit.” Without profit making orbreaking even (or cost recovery), there is no future for an organization.***Assignments are submitted in a folder with pockets***A well analyzed, neatly organized work/assignment receives full grade!Learn something from your work.
