ASU Expert: Augusta Economy ‘Very Good’

WNRR Augusta: “All things considered, I think the Augusta economy is very good” says Dr. Mark Thompson, an Economics Professor with Augusta State University. Thompson appeared on People and Issues with Helen (Weekdays 12p-3p WNRR). Thompson says, nationally, job losses and inflation are leading to national fears, but here in Augusta, the economic trend is ‘rather flat’ – not increasing dramatically or decreasing dramatically.  

“We are not seeing (sizeable job losses) here in Augusta…this is going to put Augusta in a very good position” Thompson adds.
