    (last updated on 2019/06/19)

    Why is the state’s economy so weak What can North Carolina’s leaders do about it? These are among the questions that Hood answers in Our Best Foot Forward. He also investigates how the state’s education system matches up, whether North Carolina’s tax code punishes the poor, how government spending affects economic growth, how regulation affects the cost of energy, and many other issues.
