Recession Over, But Are We Headed for an Aftershock?

Former Labor Secretary on the slow economic recovery

Wednesday, September 22, 2010

This week economists officially declared the recession over, as of June, 2009.  So now what will the recovery look like?

We asked Robert Reich about what the new economy will look like as it slowly comes out of the worst recession since The Great Depression.  Reich is former Secretary of Labor in the Clinton Administration and Professor of Public Policy at the University of California, Berkeley.  He has laid out his own plan for a strong recovery.  His new book is called "Aftershock: The Next Economy and America's Future."
