Swimming, Sinking or Treading Water? A look at Oregon's Economy

program date: 
Wed, 09/03/2008

Was Oregon's economy in trouble even before the sub-prime meltdown? That's what new numbers from the U.S. Census Bureau say. Despite record-breaking economic expansion before the current downturn, most Oregonians' incomes have remained flat since 2000. Poverty and lack of health insurance or other problems that did not improve during the boom. What did Oregon leaders fail to do? How well are Oregonians equipped to face an economy that continues to falter? What strategy should our legislature and governor consider to turn things around? Jo Ann and Dave  talk with Mike Leachman, policy analyst with the Oregon Center for Public Policy about these and other questions.
