Jobs Act

Unemployment in the Carolinas has remained stagnant in the wake of federal stimulus efforts and state programs aimed at creating jobs. Now, the Obama administration has introduced new policies in hopes of preventing a double-dip recession and finally making a dent in the number of jobless Americans still seeking employment. Four of our region’s brightest economists examine the President’s proposed American Jobs Act and the state of the Carolinas economic recovery: Peter Summers of High Point University, John Silvia of Wells Fargo, Doug Woodward of the University of South Carolina, and Scott Baier of Clemson University.
