Latest Jobs Report Shows Economy Picking Up The Pace

Jul 20, 2021

The June jobs report is out and the U.S. economy added 850,000 jobs last month. It's an encouraging pickup from the slower pace of jobs growth over the past three months and a sign that overall economic growth is tracking stronger than in the first quarter of the year.

What is the economic forecast for our region? And is it on pace with jobs growth nationwide? Joining Cincinnati Edition to discuss the economic recovery are Miami University Farmer School of Business Department of Economics Associate Professor and Research Associate with the National Bureau of Economic Research Gregory Niemesh Ph.D.; Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber Regional Data and Policy Manager Mark Kylander; and Kentucky Chamber of Commerce Senior Policy Analyst Charles Aull, Ph.D.
