It’s an interesting time to be doing business in the U.S. Amid many conflicting reports on the economy, Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner said early this month that the country is in fact (get ready), showing signs of stability. Why? Companies are hiring again. In an interview with Bloomberg Television in New York, he said: “We have some more work to do, but I think the economy is definitely getting stronger.”

Though damage has been done, and there is a lot of work to do, there are reasons to be optimistic in this climate of uncertainty. In March, employment increased the most in three years and the unemployment rate was improving. Payrolls have increased and there were posted increases in hiring in many industries, especially in manufacturing and healthcare. All in all, reasons to look towards a better future.

This month, ABJ reflects that positive future, as we look at management tactics in a new era, and focus on some very innovative companies in healthcare, food and drink, and entertainment industries. Take a look, and remember—the best is yet to come for American businesses.

Until next month,
