How Is the Economic Downturn Affecting You and Your Community?

Throughout 2009 and 2010, Market to Market is examining the impact of the economic recession in rural America. In addition to weekly coverage, the effort culminates in four special road editions, called Rural Economic Summits.

Each Rural Economic Summit includes a background segment on economic challenges confronting that particular region, a case study of what is being done to lessen the recession’s impact, and a town hall discussion with a panel of experts.

Make Your Voice Heard!
A key element of each Rural Economic Summit is viewer interaction.  Specifically, we want to hear directly from people living and working through the recession.  Has your job or business seen an impact?  What specific steps are you taking to weather the economic storm?  What is your outlook for the next few years?  How is the economic downturn affecting you and your community?
