Regional Economy Picking Up

A perfect lead in to the next story!!! Creighton University Economist Ernie Goss is predicting, “The likelihood of dipping back into recessionary territory has diminished significantly.”

Goss says a January survey of business leaders in 9-Midwest and Plains state suggests the region’s economy is picking up steam.

The Business Conditioning Index for the Mid-America Region made a healthy jump in January to 54.7, up from 50.3 in December and 47.5 in November.

The Mid-America survey covers Arkansas, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, and Kansas.

About Mike Schrant

Mike is one of those guys who has spent nearly a lifetime trying to figure out what he wants to do when he grows up. He has split time as a broadcaster and educator having first worked in radio in the early 1970’s while attending junior college. The two careers are directly connected because many of the 25 years as an educator were spent teaching broadcast journalism at the high school and college levels. Mike is married and has three adult children (no grandchildren yet) and enjoys sports, debating politics, gardening, landscaping-hauling rocks, and swapping stories with the "good old boys".
