December, 2010 Web Exclusives; Vol. 2, No. 1 Doug Campbell; Forefront
Abstract: Jobs—we know where they went, but when will they come back? That was the question before a panel of five business leaders and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke when they met at Ohio State University’s Fisher College of Business on November 30. Even though the recovery officially began in the summer of 2009, unemployment still hovers near 10 percent, and millions of Americans cannot find work. In a discussion moderated by Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland President Sandra Pianalto, the assembled chief executives candidly shared their perspectives on why job creation has been so slow, and what they think would improve the situation.
