Tennessee Business Leaders Survey

The Boyd Center for Business and Economic Research created the Business Leaders Survey in August 2020. Responses are collected biannually from business leaders across the state to provide a unique perspective on Tennessee and the nation’s economy.

Responses from the most recent survey were provided between August 1 and August 23, 2023. Responses from the most recent Tennessee Business Leaders Survey are showing increasing optimism for Tennessee’s chances of recession, with over 77% of respondents believing there’s a less than 50% chance. We summarize key themes that emerge in our Summer 2023 report.
