NFIB Optimism Index Sets New Record. (09/11/2018)

The NFIB Small Business Optimism Index for August reached 108.8, a new record in the survey’s history. The survey showed new records in job creation plans and unfilled job openings, as well as the percentage of small business owners who believe now is a good time to expand. NFIB President and CEO Juanita Duggan is quoted saying, “Today’s groundbreaking numbers are demonstrative of what I’m hearing everyday from small business owners – that business is booming. As the tax and regulatory landscape changed, so did small business expectations and plans. ... We’re now seeing the tangible results of those plans as small businesses report historically high, some record breaking, levels of increased sales, investment, earnings, and hiring.”
