Despite issues, Mid-America region continues to show strong growth

OMAHA, N.E.(WNAX)- The economy in the nine state Mid America region continues to show signs of growth, despite some negative factors.

Creighton University professor Ernie Goss says the numbers in April faded a bit.

Goss coordinates the survey in the region from Minnesota and the Dakotas to Arkansas.

He says business managers noted some problems ahead.

Goss says businesses are still looking for workers.

Goss says inflation and rising interest rates could cause further business slowdowns.
