Economic Slump Expected In Next 3-6 Months
Posted: 02 January, 2013
OMAHA (AP) - A monthly economic index for nine Midwest and Plains states rose again last month but still suggests an economic slump will continue over the next three to six months.
The Mid-America Business Conditions index hit 49.5 in December, up from November's 48.0 and October's 46.5. Creighton University economist Ernie Goss oversees the survey, and he says he's expecting only small regional increases in the job market.
