DLG Luce - Small Business Outlook
08-05-2009

The last two years have presented a very tough economic climate, the likes of which we have not seen in quite some time. Here in Central Texas though, generally speaking we have been more fortunate than a lot of other areas in the country. Both Austin and San Antonio have experienced a healthier than average economy nationally, including a relatively stable real estate market and minimal job losses. 

The San Antonio Express-News recently published an article which touches on this relatively positive economic outlook in our part of the country, focusing specifically on small businesses.

In part, the article published by William Pack noted the following:

In an environment of decreasing confidence among small-business owners nationally, sentiments in San Antonio could be running against the grain.
A national survey reports that optimism plummeted among small-business owners in July compared with the month before.
But in San Antonio, several local business owners interviewed Tuesday said they are encouraged about opportunities in the coming months, despite the turmoil that has roiled the economy and concerns about the federal government's costly intervention plan.

The article cites interviews with local small business owners and solicits theirs opinions regarding their future business prospects.
