Midday: Is the U.S. economy in trouble?

Posted at 10:56 AM on November 13, 2007 by Julia Schrenkler

Gary Eichten hosts the discussion with Arthur Rolnick, director of research at the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis, and Chris Farrell at 11:00 a.m. CT today. From the show description:

The Dow Jones slid again Monday, the fourth trading day in a row. Oil is teetering near $100-a-barrel, and while the dollar is up slightly after hitting a new low last week, it's still down nearly 12 percent since the beginning of the year.

Is it time to worry yet or are we still running under the "Move along, move along, nothing to see here" mentality? Visit the Midday page to submit your question during the show.

Note: Chris Farrell is Minnesota Public Radio's chief economics correspondent and you can always find him at his blog My Two Cents.
