Dr. Ken Louie, associate professor of economics and director of the Economic Research Institute of Erie, was a guest expert on a recent edition of National Public Radio’s Marketplace. The show’s host, Kai Ryssdal, interviewed Louie in Erie in January for a segment titled, “If manufacturing jobs can’t come back, what happens next?” You can read a transcript of the interview at marketplace.org; enter “Kenneth Louie” into the search function on the page.
