Economy Slowing Down in 9 Midwest States

As the trade war with China rolls on, a new report is showing that the economy is slowing down in nine Midwest and Plains states.

A monthly survey of business leaders is revealing that the overall index for the region has slid into negative territory at 48.6 in November from October’s 52.6.

Those behind the survey say any score above 50 suggests growth while a score below that suggests a decline.
