Georgia’s economy will continue to recover from the Great Recession and will see modest growth next year. That’s according to a forecast released Wednesday from the University of Georgia’s Terry College of Business. But low government spending and fewer new businesses will still depress the economy.
The Congressional Budget Office released a report this week that says reforming the nation’s immigration system would cut the deficit and boost the economy. The report focuses on the economic impact of a sector of the workforce that’s also the subject of research by a nonprofit, bi-partisan group in Georgia called The Essential Economy. That group says Georgia’s economy *depends* on lower-skilled workers, many of whom are undocumented.
