Article Review: Unemployment In Arkansas

850 words - 3 pages

The article discusses the recent drop in the unemployment rate in Arkansas. Analysts expect the economy to improve due to government imposing service related jobs to replace the manufacturing jobs that were lost. The economy and unemployment rate will increase over the next year, though the government implemented job seem to take a long time for those directly affected by the initial loss of jobs.The article also touches upon the housing boom which was occurring, it has slowed but is still continuing at a healthy level of activity. The slow gains of the economic recovery are modest yet over the long run they will show the positive effects of government sanctions.
