Small business optimism soaring in the U.S.

Small businesses appear to be particularly optimistic these days. Take, for instance, what recently happened with the small business optimism index of the National Federation of Independent Business.

This index has been in place for 45 years. In May, it rose 3 points from the previous month to hit 107.8. There has only been one time in the index’s whole history where the index has been higher, and that was over 30 years ago. The index hit 108.0 in 1983.
