Economy Year in Review

Significant improvements in the Carolinas’ economic health were noted in most cities in 2013. Still, not all communities in our region are feeling the impact of the recovery. In general, unemployment remains higher in many rural communities than in urban areas where companies have hired more workers and new businesses are setting up shop. On our annual year in review program, economists John Connaughton of The University of North Carolina at Charlotte, Dr. Frank Hefner of the College of Charleston, Dr. John Silvia of Wells Fargo and Dr. Doug Woodward of the University of South Carolina recap 2013 and discuss the trends of the recovery, as well as the stumbles along the way.
