Federal lawmakers managed to keep us from going over the
‘fiscal cliff,’ but that doesn’t necessarily mean the economic outlook for 2013
is rosy. Incomes actually rose in Vermont
last year, but we still have over 5% unemployment. What can we learn from the
economic indicators of the last few years about where Vermont
might be headed?
We’ll talk about Vermont’s
economy with Art Woolf, Economics professor, at UVM and Paul Cillo, President of
the Public Assets Institute.

Also in the program, the Progressive Party’s priorities in Montpelier. The Progressives hold
only a handful of seats in the Vermont House and Senate, but caucus
includes lawmakers with deep experience in the Legislature. We talk with
Rep. Chris Pearson and Sen. David Zuckerman about what they plan to
accomplish in this legislative session.
Plus, we’ll learn about two old wooden board games: Pinchnut and Crokinole.
