Rural Economic Summit

The Market to Market crew is putting the final touches on tonight’s broadcast. They will be bringing you the Rural Economic Summit from Indian Hills Community College in Ottumwa, Iowa.

It has been a busy week for the producers as they’ve traveled to Fort Madison and Ottumwa, Iowa. Plus Macon, Missouri to cover President Barack Obama’s White House to Main Street tour.

You can view the entire Ottumwa speech given by President Obama. Click on the video below. The first half is a speech, the second is Q and A.

This is the 3rd of four special “road editions” that we are producing this year. This time we’re focusing on alternative energy. Is it the commodity that will fuel an economic renaissance in rural America?

Wind energy is one of those components of the alternative energy economy. The president stopped in Ft. Madison to visit the Siemens Energy plant where wind turbine blades are produced.

Another part of the president’s midwest tour was a stop at POET’s biorefining facility in Macon, Missouri. POET is the world’s largest producer of ethanol with 1,500 employees, 1.6 billion gallons of fuel produced each year in 25 plants in 7 states.

Join us in discussing this program. Are the president’s ideas on track or does there need to be a different direction taken in jump-starting the economy?
