Looking to view President Barack Obama’s speech in Iowa on April 27, 2010, well Iowa Public Television can help.
We’ve got the speech and town hall here that took place in Ottumwa. Here’s the link to that speech.
Then The Iowa Journal took the discussion a step further with Bill Brown, chairman of the board of directors of the Iowa Association of Business and Industry. Brown also is a lawyer with BrownWinick in Des Moines. His clients largely are manufacturing companies. Also on the panel was David Swenson, associate scientist in the economics department at ISU.
Both have been on the program before.
Here’s our discussion which includes reaction to the Obama speech, what is unique about the southeast Iowa economy and how is Iowa doing when we talk economy.
We do mention Waverly, Jesup, Jewell and Jefferson to name a few spots on the map. What context ask? Click here and find out for yourself.
The Iowa Journal will also discuss the economy again on May 13.
