Real estate market may have bottomed out; part of discussion at UNCW's Economic Outlook Conference

Why is the unemployment rate in North Carolina so stubborn? 

Have we hit the bottom of the real estate market in this area?  Is it getting easier for small businesses to borrow money?  And can marine biotechnology be an economic game-changer for the Cape Fear region? 

All these questions and more will be explored at UNCW’s 9th Annual Economic Outlook Conference on October 9th. 

WHQR’s Rachel Lewis Hilburn sat down with one of the lead presenters at the conference – Dr. Woody Hall – for a preview.
