Jensen: Economy will be depressed for several years

Dr. Helen JensenHelen Jensen, professor emerita, was interviewed for a Jan. 15 Oskaloosa News article, "Iowa food pantries weather COVID, face unprecedented storm coming this winter."

“The overall economic situation will be better. There will be better unemployment rates, and that should improve food insecurity. Those are all pretty big hopes, and just the numbers I’ve seen indicate a depressed economy for some time. So yes, it will be better. But it won’t be back to pre-COVID levels for several years,” Jensen said.
