Despite the uncertainty in the news cycle regarding the election, recounts, Covid-19, and the markets, many monthly economic indicators are rising in a positive direction.
PMPA’s latest Business Trends Report showed strong out-performance over Fed Industrial Production and Manufacturing output indicators. The latest ITR November 2020 Economic Report for the Precision Machining Industry marshals a host of facts about our markets to explain their positivity. “Empirical evidence made it clear that results were likely to surpass expectations for the industrial and consumer sectors… revising our expectations accordingly.”
Of course, the caveat of a fall/winter flu season and shutdowns remains possible- but the “Empirical evidence” supports optimism at this point in time from the economic data. What are YOU doing to prepare your processes and performers for this rising trend?

New SBA Questionnaire Raises Stakes For Businesses That Borrowed Over $2 Million In PPP Loans
The Small Business Administration (SBA) has released loan necessity questionnaires that lenders must issue to over 50,000 borrowers that received $2 million or more in funds from the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) – and the questions indicate that borrowers may face a higher hurdle than originally anticipated when it comes to forgiveness. Businesses may need to demonstrate that they suffered actual economic harm as a result of the pandemic in order to be eligible for full forgiveness, which is a change from what many initially believed at the time the applications were submitted. Borrowers only have 10 days from the time they receive the questionnaire to complete it and submit supporting documentation, so those who received $2 million or more from the PPP should begin preparing to respond to the questionnaire now.
