The economy continues to be the focus of concern and subject of conversation. V.P. of Investments at Univest, Bill Van Sant says, while home and car sales are heading in the right direction, one issue could possibly impact the growth of the economy.
“What will happen with sequestration. What will be the outcome with some of the tax increases and health care costs. How is that going to drag the economy down, if it does.”
Van Sant adds, job growth needs to improve on a monthly basis to between 330 and 350-thousand jobs. He says, those kind of numbers would help the economy grow and expand. Van Sant was a Guest on WNPV’S Comment Please By Univest Program on Thursday.
