The Economy
Whether you’re a parent pinching pennies, or a policy-maker trying to find the best ways to allocate funds, the economy is probably at the forefront of your mind these days. Host Irene Maher meets with area economic development council directors to see how they’re weathering the storm and gearing up for President Obama’s stimulus package. Meanwhile, Carson Cooper introduces us to Sue Heinz, a married mother of four from Sarasota featured in Parade Magazine and on The Oprah Winfrey Show for her tried-and-true thrifty techniques for living. You’ll also get a chance to peek behind the counter and see what it’s like to work as a job placement counselor during tough economic times, as Larry Elliston heads to the Tampa Bay Workforce Alliance.
