Your Call 032608 What is the state of our economy?

What is the true state of U.S. economy and how did we get here? On the next Your Call, we'll take a look at the current U.S. economic crisis. By the end of this year, 20 million Americans could have mortgages worth more than the value of their homes. 63,000 jobs were lost last month, the biggest drop since July 2003. And the U.S. dollar continues to weaken. Has the economy slipped into recession? How are you being impacted by the economic crisis? And what are the solutions? It's Your Call, with me, Rose Aguilar, and you.
