“What’s Happening with the Wisconsin Economy?”

Although Wisconsin was not as negatively affected by the Great Recession as many other states, the economic recovery has been painfully slow. Why is that? And what are the engines of economic growth and development for Wisconsin’s economy? More importantly, what can we do to foster stronger economic growth and development? Get thoughtful answers to these questions from Steven Deller, a professor and community-development specialist with the UW’s Department of Agricultural and Applied Economics.
