Bankers more optimistic about economy


A survey of Wisconsin bankers shows optimism about the economy. 

Rose Oswald Poels with the Wisconsin Bankers Association tells Brownfield their semi-annual survey surprised her as member bankers had a more positive outlook than they did six months ago. “They do see some signs of inflation easing and I think that you know, we’ve seen validated by actions of the Fed recently where they did not choose to raise rates again.”

Eighty-six percent of the bankers predicted inflation to fall or stay the same compared to 76% last fall.
