There is considerable optimism that U.S. business conditions will soar this year. Nearly 80 percent of the respondents to our seventh annual Business Outlook Survey believe U.S. business conditions will improve, compared to 44 percent last year. In fact, only 2 percent expected significant improvement last year, but now, 19 percent predict significant improvement. Business owners and executives are just as upbeat about their own organizations. The primary reason for the boost in confidence is clear—President Donald Trump. As one respondent wrote, “President Trump is a positive game changer for the business community.”
