Mid-America Manufacturing Expands Despite Trade Worries

The December Creighton University Mid-America Business Conditions Index, an economic indicator for the nine-state region stretching from Minnesota to Arkansas, rose for the first time since August, pointing to positive economic growth for the next three to six months. Supply managers report negative effects from ongoing tariffs.

The Business Conditions Index, which ranges between 0 and 100, climbed to 55.2 from November’s 54.1. This is the 25th straight month the index has remained above growth neutral 50.0.
