Black Friday - Should it be Renamed?


What was once easily defined as the day after Thanksgiving, Black Friday has taken on a whole new meaning and can no longer be defined by a single day.

This week on Georgia Works Radio we talk to retail expert John Talbot who teaches retailing at Indiana University. He says Black Friday is no longer what many think it is. Competition and consumer desires are changing the shopping season.

Also this week we look at Georgia’s economy. Dr. Rajeev Dhawan leads the Economic Forecasting Center at Georgia State University. We talk to him to find out why & how Georgia’s economy is growing and what should students be preparing to do over the next quarter century.
