INDIANAPOLIS | Indiana has successfully created a low-tax, low-regulation business environment, but its future economic growth hinges on Hoosiers who, more often than not, lack the education and healthy habits needed to move the state forward.
INDIANAPOLIS | Gov. Mike Pence is certain reducing Indiana's personal income tax rate will create jobs, despite the doubts of legislative leaders and the increase in unemployment that followed distribution of the state's automatic taxpayer refund.
INDIANAPOLIS | U.S. Sen. Dan Coats, R-Ind., believes an $85 billion across-the-board cut in federal spending may be just what the United States needs to finally get serious about its "unsustainable" finances.
INDIANAPOLIS | A new era in Indiana history begins Monday when Republican Mike Pence is sworn in as the state's 50th governor.
INDIANAPOLIS | Lt. Gov.-elect Sue Ellspermann was introduced Monday to other future lieutenant governors at the biannual new member meeting of the National Lieutenant Governors Association.
WASHINGTON | Below is the statement the Fed released Thursday after its policy meeting:
Americans spent more on cars and trucks, and companies restocked their shelves at the strongest pace in nearly two years, helping the U.S. economy reach its fastest growth rate of last year.
The long-suffering job market is ending the year better off than it began. The number of people applying for unemployment benefits each week has dropped by 10 percent since January.
In the latest sign that the economy is surging at year's end, unemployment claims have dropped to the lowest level since April 2008, long before anyone realized that the nation was in a recession.
CROWN POINT | A group whose organizers said will work to promote economic development in the city met Monday for the first time in more than a year.
The U.S. economy will muddle through the next year without a recession, but growth-predicted to be 2.4 percent-will be too weak to make much of a dent in the unemployment rate, forecasters believe.
Like the sequel of a blockbuster horror movie, the debt ceiling may strike again: A gridlocked bipartisan congressional committee must find a way to agree on a deficit reduction plan by Nov. 23rd.
Employers stopped adding jobs in August, an alarming setback for an economy at risk of another recession. The government also reported that the unemployment rate remained at 9.1 percent. It was the weakest jobs report since September 2010.
WASHINGTON | The U.S. service sector, which employs nearly 90 percent of the country's work force, expanded for a 19th consecutive month in June. But growth slowed from May, a sign the economy remains sluggish.
The U.S. economy expanded a little faster at the beginning of the year than previously estimated. But the growth rate was still anemic and economists don't see that changing much in the coming months.
The Standard & Poor's 500 index has dropped 6.8 percent since April 29. Declining just as quickly: the hopes of many investors and economists for robust growth in the second half of the year.
Political and civic leaders gathered at the Gary/Chicago International Airport for the official groundbreaking of the facility's $153 million runaway extension project.
Companies created 268,000 jobs in April, the most since February 2006. The gains were widespread, as retailers, education, healthcare, and even financial and construction companies added jobs. Paradoxically, the unemployment rate rose.
Consumers as a whole will likely spend more this year-but not because we'll all be earning more money. Even people lucky enough to get a raise will likely spend most of those extra dollars to pay higher gas and food prices.
