Eye on con­sumers

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - BUSINESS -

The Univer­sity of Michi­gan re­leases to­day its lat­est monthly snap­shot of how con­sumers feel about the econ­omy.

Econ­o­mists pre­dict that this month’s con­sumer sen­ti­ment in­dex will be 88.2, the low­est read­ing since Septem­ber 2015 and down from the read­ing of 90 in Oc­to­ber last year. The pro­jected de­cline is likely a re­flec­tion of the un­cer­tainty ahead of the pres­i­den­tial elec­tion.
