Recent economic reports have been cause for optimism as we enter the new year, showing signs of recovery like dropping unemployment rates and rising consumer confidence. But things seemed to change last week, with trouble in European markets and a dismal domestic retail sales report.

Did the economy do an about-face, or was last week just a bump in the road? And how does it all affect Central Florida? Economic analyst Hank Fishkind breaks down the news and the numbers for 90.7’s Nicole Creston.

Nicole came to Central Florida to attend Rollins College and started working for Orlando’s ABC News Radio affiliate shortly after graduation. She joined WMFE in 2010. As a field reporter, news anchor and radio show host in the City Beautiful, she has covered everything from local arts to national elections, from extraordinary hurricanes to historic space flights, from the people and procedures of Florida’s justice system to the changing face of the state’s economy.
