Midwest economy continues to show signs of growth, inflation likely to come

OMAHA, N.E.(WNAX)- While the economy in the nine state Mid America region continues to show solid growth, there are some signs that need attention.

Ernie Goss, an economist at Creighton University in Omaha, says some interest rate hikes could be coming.

Goss says inflation is the biggest looming threat.

Goss says the region should continue to see improvements in employment.

Goss says supply chain issues will also be a problem for businesses in the region through the end of the year.
