Economics

I am somewhat skeptical of government employees acting like business and industry consultants. Even if they do come from the Dept. of Commerce. But if they are willing to spend money in Rocky Mount trying to find ways to increase exports of products then they should be welcomed. The article also mentioned housing. I am not clear about the government's role-plans in this area.
