In the latest sign that the Trump administration’s economic policies are fueling an economic boom, the National Federation of Independent Businesses reported Tuesday that its gauge of small business optimism had risen in August to its highest level in nearly half a century. Indeed, the headline number climbed to 108.8, reflecting the fact that more small businesses are planning to hire more workers, raise wages or increase capital investment. That shattered the previous record set more than 35 years ago under Ronald Reagan.
“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,” said NFIB President and CEO Juanita D. Duggan. “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.” said Juanita Duggans, the CEO of the NFIB.
“There is no question that the change of policy in Washington has everything to do with the increase in the optimism index.”
