“We haven’t seen numbers like this in a long time” – small business confidence soars

Small business optimism is at its highest level since 2004, according to a National Federation of Small business survey. Small businesses expect to see increased sales, hire more employees, and expand capital investment.

“We haven’t seen numbers like this in a long time,” said NFIB President and CEO Juanita Duggan. “Small business is ready for a breakout, and that can only mean very good things for the U.S. economy.”
