Conversations Live: Making Sense of the Economy

Aired February 16, 2023

Unemployment is low, and wages are rising. But the cost of living, from groceries to paying for a home, has gone up. And the possibility of a recession or economic slow down looms. On WPSU’s Conversations Live, we talk with experts about changes in the economy, and what they mean for everyday people.
