Unemployment Drop in Atlanta
The big economic threats in 2013—fiscal cliff, European breakup, and a China hard-landing—are no longer threats this year. That was the word from Dr. Marci Rossell, former chief economist with CNBC, at CREW Atlanta's economic forecast last week. She also sees Atlanta's unemployment rate dropping to 6.5% this year. Marci (right, with CREW president Christine Gorham) has called on business leaders to beef up their international presence, as Delta Air Lines did last year with a huge impact on its stock price.
