This segment from the July 31, 2009, episode of the series “Louisiana: The State We’re In” features an on-set interview with economist Loren Scott about the state of the United States and Louisiana economies. Charlie Whinham and Shauna Sanford talk to Scott about: the economic indicators showing that the national economy is starting to turn around; the comparison between this economic recession and the recession of 1980-1981; unemployment numbers; why the Louisiana economy fared better during the recession than almost every other state; and the possibility of a lag response for the unemployment numbers in Louisiana.
