Jones College Research Cited by Atlanta Fed

The Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta's blog Southpoint cited research by MTSU's Office of Consumer Research and Business and Economic Research Center in its post "Confidence Improving in the Region"

  • In their December publication, Dr. Timothy Graeff writes that: "On the positive side, consumers feel slightly better about the current economy. The current situation index rose modestly to -90 from -93. The percent who said that business conditions in the country as a whole are 'good' gained only slightly to 7 from 5, but the percent who said that business conditions are 'bad' dropped to 34 from 41."
  • As an aside and a plug for our friends at MTSU's Business & Economic Research Center, see their heat maps of Tennessee's employment picture. They also provide similar maps for major state metro areas, including Nashville."
