The Long Haul: A Trucker's View of Economic Recovery

Tuesday, July 28, 2009

Economists offer an academic view of the economy—they know the numbers, the rates, and the interest. But if you want to know the reality behind those numbers and find out what's happening on the ground, there's only one view: the trucker's view. Cliff Hagedon owns Fort Gratiot Express trucking; he carries freight across the nation. The more people buy, the busier he is. He joins The Takeaway from the road on his way to Texarkana.

"I don't believe that we're completely out of the recession, but we are making a huge turn."
