FIBER monitors the trends and major fluctuations in economic growth, inflation, interest rates and financial markets in key economies around the world. We provide business and financial managers as well as planners and policy makers with indexes unavailable from any other source. The selection of indicators and composite indexes is based on the unique methodology developed in a long series of studies that first originated at the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER). These tools are used to identify turning points and inflection points in the economy, and as such are essential for informed business and financial decision-making.
Essentially, we analyze global economic recessions and recoveries in U.S. and abroad along with directional changes in inflation cycles using long leading, short leading, and coincident indexes.
