The owners of small and mid-sized businesses provide unique insights into the issues that impact economic growth at the local and national levels
Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) March 27, 2008
The new results from the PNC Economic Outlook survey of business owners will be announced Thursday, April 3, at 8:00 a.m. ET during a free Webinar. Three PNC experts - chief economist Stuart Hoffman, senior economist Robert Dye and Todd Barnhart of PNC Business Banking - will present their analysis and insights on the results.
PNC's semiannual survey of small and mid-sized business owners across the United States began in 2003. The results include expectations for their own business performance, including sales and profits, for the next six months and beyond.
"The owners of small and mid-sized businesses provide unique insights into the issues that impact economic growth at the local and national levels," said Hoffman, recognized by USA Today as one of the nation's leading economic forecasters in 2007. Findings from the survey help to uncover economic trends and the outlook on sales, profits and hiring among business owners. The results also delve into their views on the impact of the economic stimulus package, energy prices and interest rates on cash flow.
