SBET Shows Modest Improvement In February. (03/12/2019)

The NFIB Small Business Optimism Index improved modestly in February, increasing to 101.7. Views about business conditions in the future improved, as well as perceptions of the current period as a good time to expand. The Uncertainty Index fell 1 point to 85, a small decline but still indicative of residual uncertainty from the government shutdown. NFIB President and CEO Juanita Duggan said, “Small business owners are thankful to have the government shutdown in the rearview mirror but need more certainty about the future... Small businesses put their money where their expectations are as we’ve seen when they get tax and regulatory relief. The best thing Washington can do for the small business half of the economy is to continue the policies – tax cuts and deregulation – that leave them with more resources to invest and find qualified workers.”
