Fed. Reserve Bank ranks Wis. 49th in economic growth

MILWAUKEE, WI (WTAQ) - An economic indicator from the Federal Reserve Bank ranked the state 49th, when it comes to economic growth.

Marquette University Economist Dr. Abdur Chowdhury says the manufacturing sectors are suffering the most because of direct competition with foreign companies - and the outlook over the next two to three years looks bleak.

He adds that recent political turmoil within the state is also having an impact, including the recall election of Governor Scott Walker a year ago.
