The present situation index also fell to 166.9 from 173.5 in November. This œthat economic growth in the final quarter of 2019 will remain weak, said Lynn Franco, senior director of economic indicators at The Conference Board, in a statement. œHowever, consumers™ short-term expectations improved modestly, and growth in early 2020 is likely to remain at around 2 percent. Overall, confidence levels are still high and should support solid spending during this holiday season.
