Short Hills-based Dun & Bradstreet, the world’s leading source of commercial information and insight on businesses, today released the July 2014 U.S. Economic Health Tracker which provides a monthly, multi-dimensional perspective on the U.S. economy, including small business health, total job growth, and overall U.S. business health. The report revealed that the U.S. added an estimated 244,000 new non-farm jobs in June, with strong gains in business services and retail.
“While we see incremental improvements across the board in the U.S. economy, the pace of the expansion is likely to remain subdued due to hesitant increases in business investment,” said Paul Ballew, Chief Data & Analytics Officer, Dun & Bradstreet. “Consequently, we are taking a more cautious view for 2014 but have reason to be optimistic that these continued improvements will pave the way for a faster recovery in 2015.”
