Are Americans Becoming More Optimistic About The Economy?

Consumer sentiment rose more than expected to 97.8 in the first half of March, says Business Insider.

Increasing optimism was reportedly concentrated among lower- and middle-class households.

The gains come after disappointing sentiment readings at the beginning of 2019.
