Listeners Describe A Tumultuous Economic Year

Tuesday, December 28, 2010

All week long we're talking with some of our favorite guests from the past year about the year that was, and what they foresee in the year ahead. Today, we discuss the economy. According to some financial reporters and analysts, the economy is on a slow, gradual upswing. But is this upswing something non-analysts are feeling?

We speak with Lyndon Dees, a listener from Stillwater, OK, who’s been on the show this past year. Lyndon lost his job as a consultant in 2009, and has been unemployed or under-employed for most of the months since.

Listener Walt Rowen also returns to The Takeaway. A small business owner in Columbia, Pennsylvania, he owns the "Susquehanna Glass Company."
