As usual, figuring out the state of the economy and where it’s heading is a matter of interpretation. Here are three stories to help:
Survey suggests region’s economy continues to grow (AP)
Layoffs coming to Minn. factories, survey predicts (MPR)
Reports show Iowa, Midwest economies could face challenges (Des Moines Register)
By the way, those headlines are all describing the same survey.
About the blogger
Bob Collins retired from Minnesota Public Radio in 2019 after 12 years of writing NewsCut and pointing out to complainants that posts weren’t news stories. A son of Massachusetts, he was a news editor 1992-1998, created the MPR News regional website in 1999, invented the popular Select A Candidate, started several blogs, and every day lamented that his Minnesota Fantasy Legislature project never caught on.
