TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — Ohio businesses are optimistic about the economy in 2014.
A survey of 149 businesses in the Buckeye State showed that 92 percent of them are convinced the economy will be good or better next year than it was in 2013.
The (Toledo) Blade (http://bit.ly/1lcI8tF ) reports that the attitudes of the Ohio companies toward the coming year are more upbeat than 260 businesses in Michigan, 1,000 in the Midwest region, and 1,740 nationwide who took part in a 2014 National Business Trends Survey.
The survey was conducted by the Milwaukee-based Employer Associations of America.
It's a reversal from last year, when executives or companies in Ohio were less enthusiastic than those in Michigan, the Midwest, and the United States about the performance of the economy in 2013.
