Half of U.S. Counties Have Not Recovered From Recession

Revelation 6:5,6 NCV When the Lamb opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, "Come!" I looked, and there before me was a black horse, and its rider held a pair of scales in his hand. Then I heard something that sounded like a voice coming from the middle of the four living creatures. The voice said, "A quart of wheat for a day's pay, and three quarts of barley for a day's pay, and do not damage the olive oil and wine!"

A new report from the Commerce Department shows that half of the nation’s counties have still not recovered from the economic depression despite the overall nationwide economy indicating a recovery.

The Wall Street Journal reports that despite the good nationwide number the economic recovery is uneven at best.

One of the report’s authors said that the report shows why many Americans feel like the economy is not improving.  Emilia Istrate said that Americans feel the economy locally and that if there’s no recovery in their area they don’t believe overall conditions are improving.

The report examined GDP, total number of jobs, unemployment rates and home prices.
