Jeremy Jackson: ND Economic Forcast ~ Deb Marquart Essay ~ Sue Balcom on Rhubarb


Thursday, May 27, 2021 - A new quarterly forecast is out for the economy in North Dakota. Joining us to discuss the report is Jeremy Jackson, professor of economics at NDSU. ~~~ Deb Marquart grew up in Napoleon, deep in the Sauerkraut Triangle of North Dakota.  After touring as a rock musician she moved to writing.  She teaches at Iowa State in Ames, and is Iowa's Poet Laureate (and still performs music). She has piles of honors and critical praise, especially for her memoir "The Horizontal World: Growing Up Wild in the Middle of Nowhere."  Today she reads from her recent nonfiction writing in a piece titled “Pilgrim Soul.” ~~~ Sue Balcom is here for our weekly segment titled “Main Street Eats.” Today she’s talking rhubarb.
