The Sun may be shining again…or at least trying to

Posted on Oct 19 2011 by

I split my time between the East Coast and West Coast. Last month, I guess the rain in the northeast was getting to me.  Seemed like between the August rain and all the bad economic news in the media, it was hard to find a lot to smile about.  But I did manage to find […]

Tired of all the Bad News?

Posted on Sep 09 2011 by

I’m tired of all the bad news.  Seriously.  Every day it seems like it’s something different.  We get a brief ray of sunshine, and we feel good for a few minutes, then its right back to feeling bad again.  Like today… for those of us who are in the Northeast (New Jersey specifically), the constant […]

So how many ____ does it take to ____?

Posted on Aug 02 2011 by

Ah, thought I was heading towards a bad joke?  Well, while it may be tempting to follow that through, I was really talking about trade payments needed to make a credit decision.  When I started in the data business all those years ago, my primary responsibility was to review credit reports all day.  I was […]

Where did all the “optimism” go?

Posted on Jul 15 2011 by

Ok, that is a loaded question. We can take a look at many things, and say, “yea, with all the bad news coming out, of course small business owners are losing confidence”.  The NFIB confirms that with their latest report. Reasons cited?  What else….inflation fears brought on by higher gas prices, and high unemployment.  But wait […]

Tale of Two Recoveries Redux

Posted on Jun 24 2011 by

So, sometimes it takes a little while for the popular press to catch up.  I say that because on June 14th, an article ran on msnbc.com talking about, of all things a “Tale of Two Economies”.  Well, if they had seen our blog on May 18, they would have seen that we could have told them […]

Have you seen the future recently?

Posted on Jun 13 2011 by

They say the future has a strange way of arriving on time.  As much as we want to ignore it, it still arrives.  The question then, is how well have you prepared for it?  One way you can get ready, is to get the information and tools you can rely on to make sure you […]

Tale of two recoveries – big business leverages its position while small business struggles

Posted on May 18 2011 by

An interesting dynamic is playing out as the economy begins to get legs.  For example, when you look at the payment behavior of U.S. businesses, there’s a difference in big business trade payments vs. small business.  Our Experian Business Benchmark report shows large businesses are delinquent at a much higher rate.  However,when it comes to […]

Experian’s Vision conference was a hit!

Posted on May 09 2011 by

I just returned from our annual Vision conference, and it was a great success.  This was the 30th annual event, and we played host to over 400 financial services professionals from around the globe.  The program was excellent…education sessions highlighting best practices for managing credit risk, informative “hot topics” sessions around important economic trends, and […]
