Small Business Optimism Rose in October

The small business half of the economy posted a 0.6 point gain in October’s NFIB Small Business Optimism Index.

The Uncertainty Index declined 4 points but remains historically high heading into an election year. One quarter of the owners selected “finding qualified labor” as their top business problem, more than cited taxes or regulations.
