Economic Confidence Edges Back Up

Americans’ confidence in the economy improved last week after slipping in late July and early August. Gallup’s Economic Confidence Index rose to -10 in the week ending Aug. 11 from the previous week’s -14 — the worst confidence rating since mid-April. The increase in consumers’ confidence this week is the largest one-week jump since mid-May. [cont.]
