Americans’ View on the Economy Reaches 8-Year High


According to the latest CNBC All-America Economic survey, a record 27 percent of those surveyed said they currently view the economy as good or excellent. That number is the highest level we’ve seen in eight years.

In comparison, just last year, only 16 percent of respondents gave the economy good marks.

“The latest numbers show how far the public’s attitudes on the economy have come since the economic bottom but also how far there is to go,” CNBC’s Steve Liesman explains. “The level of optimism remains about 10 points below where it routinely stood before the recession.”
