This week, a new monthly survey of business leaders suggested the economy is slowing down in a section of nine states in the Midwest and Plains, including all three Siouxland State.
The index slipped into negative territory for the first time in a few years.
Economist Ernie Goss from Creighton University oversees the survey that saw a November number of 48.6. That’s down four points since October. Any score below 50 shows decline.
Goss talked to Siouxland Public Media’s Sheila Brummer about the survey and the impact of the trade war on agriculture in Siouxland.
