Opening Discussion Topic:
We typically do our budgeting based on the assumption that we are operating under a capitalist system. But are there other significant alternatives that could become a new reality for business owners (e.g., The Green New Deal, Democratic Socialism, or ???)?
With several major contenders for the Democratic Party Presidential Nomination currently attacking Classic Capitalism, the business environment as we know it could shift significantly.
We’ll briefly touch on some of the other emerging alternatives and discuss them. Then we’ll share our current best guesses on the post 2020 American Economic Environment and its implications relative to our current Economic Environment.
As always, we’ll look to hear and discuss, “What’s Keeping You Up Nights?”

"I probably would have to pay 16 consultants to get the kind of great information I get from the Round Tables and the people in my group."
"ABL is the best business meeting series I have ever attended. It is a professional organization for CEOs and Presidents, where the Members bring the real day to day business cases to the meeting and share opinions and solutions. I do my best to participate every meeting I can."
"ABL has been a great pay-off for me and I have found great value. It has brought me help in financing the company, resolving financial issues, and customer problems. And it’s served for personal growth, too."
"The big thing that ABL provides to us is that it’s companies of like interests, as opposed to other types of groups that have CEOs with maybe very divergent interests."
"I've been a Member of ABL for the last 10 years. ABL has given me a good group of more experienced executives who've walked in shoes that I am about to walk in."
"The best thing for me about ABL are the great people in the Organization. It’s a caring group of people, they are very open in sharing their own problems, and that leads to an environment where you can share your problems back. And they’re non-judgmental. They’ll give you the best advise they can. You can take it or not."
