The Equipment Leasing & Finance Foundation released the 2018 update to the Applied Economics Handbook: Make Better Business Decisions Using Economics.

The book provides equipment finance executives with insights on how to leverage economic data and tools to benefit their businesses. Its first edition was released in 2016.

The handbook, prepared by economics and public policy consulting firm Keybridge Research, covers economic data from a variety of private and government sources and emphasizes research tailored to the equipment finance industry. In addition to a series of real-world case studies, the handbook also includes:

  • A framework for the U.S. economy as it relates to the equipment finance industry
  • Methods for forecasting business volume
  • Techniques for portfolio management
  • Approaches for anticipating shifts in portfolio performance and managing risk.

“Many equipment finance firms, particularly smaller independents, have limited in-house analytical capabilities and experience using applied economics techniques,” said Tom Ware, Foundation Research Committee chair. “The Applied Economics Handbook offers industry participants guidance for an enhanced level of sophistication in their decision-making.”
