Explain why they are important to the current or future condition of your organization. 2. How sensitive do you think your organization was to the latest economic recession that began in 2007?

Macro-Economic Indicators effecting Boeing Boeing has been able to successfully negotiate the last three years of harsh economic times because of the growth that it has seen in its overseas operations, and backlog of orders for new deliveries. Additionally, due to the increased fuel prices, consumers are simply finding it cheaper to fly than to drive, thus causing an increase in air travel. Certain macro-economic indicators that have the greatest impact on the operations and/or planning of Boeing operations are: employment indicators, retail sales of durable goods, and government fiscal policy or taxes.
