Louisville economy’s growth lagged behind

The Courier Journal report, ‘Louisville economy’s growth lagged behind’, defies Fischer’s propaganda about his economic development achievements.
“The nation’s economy overall is on the upswing, but by one measure, Louisville lost ground to its peers last year.  Gross domestic product in the Louisville area grew 1.5 percent, according to data released Monday by the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis. That’s below the average 2.1 percent growth seen in the 383 other metropolitan areas around the country.  The relatively sluggish growth caused Louisville to fall to 47th in the national rankings, behind Jacksonville, Florida.”
