March Small Business Optimism Index Continues 16-Month Streak Of Historically High Results. (04/10/2018)

NFIB’s SBET for March showed a small business optimism index of 104.7, down from February’s 107.6 from February but still within the top five percent of 45 years of survey results. NFIB indicated that March’s index continues a 16-month streak of results in the top five percent. NFIB President and CEO Juanita Duggan was quoted saying, “It has been a remarkable 16 months for small business optimism. ... This is the first time in 35 years where the fewest number of small business owners have told us that taxes are their number one business problem.” Chief Economist Bill Dunkelberg was quoted adding, “Hiring and spending on new buildings and land acquisition remained at strong levels, a good sign of confidence in economic prospects.”
