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 2 and August 21, 2022. Responses from the most recent Tennessee Business Leaders Survey are upbeat about Tennessee’s economy, with about two-thirds of respondents expecting Tennessee’s economy to improve more rapidly than the national economy over the next year. Business leaders were also less pessimistic about inflation, with only 35.6% believing it’s here to stay. We summarize key themes that emerge in our Summer 2022 report.
