Mixed economic messages are coming from the White House today.

Fed Chairman Jerome Powell is expressing concern and urging Congress to pass another stimulus package, while Treasury Secretary Stephen Mnuchin forecasts a full recovery to 2019 levels by next year.

Economic analyst Hank Fishkind tells 90.7’s Nicole Darden Creston who he thinks is right and what it all means for Central Florida.

Nicole came to Central Florida to attend Rollins College and started working for Orlando’s ABC News Radio affiliate shortly after graduation. She joined Central Florida Public Media 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.
