Are We Really Recovering From the Recession?

Are We Really Recovering From the Recession? We've heard the whispers about the recession ending over the past few months. Those voices got louder this week with reports that the U.S GDP grew 3.5 percent last quarter. Is the U.S economy recovering from the recession? Monday morning at 9, host Dan Moulthrop and guests will examine indicators like the price of oil, pace of exports, home sales, and consumer spending, and we'll find out why the national outlook seems so much brighter than what we see here in Northeastern Ohio. We'll also get your perspective and get answers to your questions.

Morning Dan,
Since I closed my business in Jan 05, due to a loss a 30% loss of revenue. I have worked for insurance at UPS as a loader and gained a degree in business by 2007. I worked in the mortgage industry for 15 months. During that time I watched
people fight debt created by escalating medical costs. And medical insurance options are worse now
with devastating consequenses to communities and business. With an unhealthy work population how can skills be developed? With out stopping spiraling medical costs how can companies build for the future?
best regards
Steve Thomas
