NAM Quarterly Survey Reports Record Optimism

In the latest Manufacturers’ Outlook Survey from the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM), U.S. manufacturers express levels of optimism about the future of their companies and their industry that have never been seen in the survey’s 20-year history. Manufacturers project record-setting growth rates for capital investments, full-time employment and inventories over the next 12 months. The percentage of manufacturers who believe the country is on the right track (67.6%) has risen since the last survey, while the numbers of those who believe we are on the wrong track (11.4%) or are unsure (21%) have both fallen.
