Confidence survey yields mixed result
July 27, 2005,
BENTONVILLE, Ark. -- Overall confidence in the economy slipped last month, according to the Small Business Confidence Index released today by Sam’s Club.
However, this July drop in economic confidence was not reflected in how small business owners and managers feel about the U.S. employment environment. Of those surveyed, 57.5 percent felt that employment levels will remain the same over the next six months, up two-tenths of a point from last month.
