AP Economy Survey: a Look at the Recovery

Chief Economist David Huether of the National Association of Manufacturers is interviewed in this AP report on the economy, derived from The Associated Press’s new survey of top economists around the country. AP reports that the economy is on the mend, but home values and job creation will lag.

 And here’s the print story, “AP survey: Recovery to remain sluggish into 2011“:

WASHINGTON (AP) — The pillars of Americans’ financial security — jobs and home values — will stay shaky well into 2011, according to an Associated Press survey of leading economists.

The findings of the new AP Economy Survey, released Monday, point to an economic recovery that will move slowly and fitfully this year and next. As a result, the Federal Reserve will be forced to keep interest rates near zero until at least the final quarter of this year, three-fourths of the economists said.

 AP will do the AP Economy Survey quarterly.
