Business conditions up in Missouri

Dr. Ernie Goss of the Creighton University Economic Outlook reports some positive news for Misourians:

For a seventh consecutive month, Missouri’s Business Conditions Index was above growth neutral. The index from a survey of supply managers in the state, climbed to 52.2 from December’s 50.1 and November’s 50.6. Components of the overall index from the January survey were new orders at 50.8, production, or sales, at 50.1, delivery lead time at 55.1, inventories at 54.6, and employment at 50.6. “We are seeing improving business conditions among manufacturers in the state, both durable and nondurable goods producers. January business activity was much healthier for food producers in the state,” said Goss.
