Midwest Economy Showing Growth

Jan 3, 2020

(Omaha, NE)  --  The Midwest economy is showing a bit of growth heading into the new year.  Creighton University Economist Ernie Goss says December's Mid-America Business Conditions Index is just under 51, which has the nine-state region including Iowa above growth neutral for the second time in the last three months.  He says the business managers in a recent survey say the inability to hire skilled workers and trade relations with China continue to be their biggest challenges.
