MetLife and U.S. Chamber of Commerce Small Business Index for Q1 2018

The MetLife and U.S. Chamber of Commerce have released their Q1 2018 Small business Index and the findings are interesting. Small business is more optimistic than at any time since the survey’s inception. Much of the optimism is based on the recent passage of tax reform believing the reform will help their business grow and lead to a better national economy.

Even with the optimism small business appears to lean toward caution in spending. Much of the respondents reported they were going to save the profits as opposed to investing the profits. However, the South region of the survey that includes Texas is much more optimistic and leads the nation in outlook regarding he health of the economy, desire to invest in their businesses and growth in hiring.

Read the entire report. It is an interesting read!
