Design/Construction Industry Optimism Fades in Face of StagFlation

Mon, August 15, 2022 8:53 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

The bloom is off the recent historic high optimism of an expanding economy and markets reflected in the CIRT Quarterly Sentiment Index from just a year ago.  The overall 3rdQ/2022 index level plummeted 35% in the last twelve months falling to only a 51.4 reading, barely above neutral (The index is on a scale of 0-100 with a reading of 50 being neutral).  Every index factor recorded a downward trend, which means both inflationary concerns AND economic slowdown worries are in play at the same time.
