Global volatility and its effect on local healthcare supply in the southeast

  • Global economic indicators do not universally support a national contraction.
  • Emerging market declines and a stronger U.S. dollar are weakening demand, but the weakening is disproportionately borne by energy and heavy industrials like Exxon.
  • Georgia realized a net gain of 92,900 new jobs in 2015 and is outpacing the U.S. in population and employment growth.
  • Non-elective medical procedures comprise significant revenue in healthcare organizations, but most of the profitability is based on consumer spending and choice.
  • Removing consumer confidence, whether through institutional shortcomings or macroeconomic volatility, typically leads to deficiencies in local delivery models.

Executive Summary

Recent events in global markets have led to speculation that the expansion of the US economy has ended. But indicators do not universally support a national contraction. China’s growth continues to decline (along with other emerging markets) and with a strong U.S. dollar, weaker economies are dampening the demand for U.S. exports and hindering businesses bottom lines. However, much of this damage to reported profits is contained and disproportionately borne by energy and heavy industrials like Exxon.

The Tide Falls But Boats Still Float




Global volatility and its effect on accessibility of capital in Georgia

  • Global economic indicators do not universally support a national contraction.
  • As emerging markets decline in a strong U.S. dollar environment, U.S. exports are under pressure.
  • However, most profit losses are disproportionately borne by energy and heavy industrials like Exxon. Minus those sectors, U.S. profits remained unchanged in 2015.

  • In addition, Georgia’s economy is outpacing the U.S. in population and employment growth, banks gotta bank and many factors are pushing institutional equity sources into the market over going back to sitting the bench.

OPPORTUNITIES IN DENTISTRY-April 2016




Do you know what your dental practice is worth?

The dental market has seen a lot of positive changes this year and has been the catalyst for advancements in products, technologies and services.  It’s also had more dentists transitioning out of their practice at a younger age than ever before.

Introduction:
Whether dentists are trying to sell a practice due to retirement, or positioning themselves to become part of a larger dental group, they must use an objective view when identifying what makes their business attractive to buyers. The transition of their practice generates its own series of decisions and events, but if executed properly, dentists can sell their practices in a shorter amount of time.

Chinese Yuan Moves East Atlanta Property Values




Global instability, interest rate insecurity and economic indicators for Georgia property tax revenues

  • Global economic indicators do not universally support a national contraction.
  • Fed’s interest rate increases, emerging market declines and a stronger U.S. dollar are weakening demand abroad, but the weakening is disproportionately borne by energy and heavy industrials like Exxon.
  • In 2015, Georgia realized a net gain of 92,900 new jobs, home sales up 7%, along with population and employment growth that is outpacing the domestic figures.
  • Interest rates have hurt property values in the past, but in Georgia, a shortage in supply and aforementioned economic factors should overshadow downward pricing pressure from interest rates.
  • Analysis concludes that national (and even more so local) economic fundamentals point toward further expansion of property values—and therefore property tax revenues—through 2017.
