Where Is Our Economy Headed?

Given the current government shutdown in the U.S., the question of where our economy is headed is one that is being asked not only in this country but around the world.

A few days before the government shutdown, I had the opportunity to interview Russell Hancock, the president and CEO of Joint Venture Silicon Valley - a well-known think tank located in San Jose, CA. You can view the organization's website here.

Hancock made some insightful remarks about how some of the trends taking place in Silicon Valley are having an impact around the nation and why these trends are being watched around the world. If you haven't seen our discussion you can still view it in its entirety until October 12 on the Media Center's website, where there is a schedule for my shows here.

Here is an excerpt from my discussion with Hancock.  See if you agree with some of his assessments.
