The economy is slow right now, but to call it a recession at this point is hyperbole. Inc.com has a quick story on a survey of small-business owners. The survey sample is small, but the results are encouraging.
Though many in the small-business sector remain concerned with broad economy conditions, a growing number of owners and employees are upbeat about activity in their own market, a new survey finds.
Of 500 small-business owners and employees recently polled by Opinion Research Corporation, a Princeton, N.J-based database firm, 65 percent rated their firm’s business conditions as good, while less than a third described them as poor. Though 71 percent said the U.S economy was struggling, 50 percent expect it to recover in a year.
