Rural and small-town America has been slower to recover from the Great Recession than U.S. metropolitan areas. This webinar explores the general economic context in which rural Americans are embedded, with a focus on poverty and underemployment. It traces trends over recent decades, and explores possible causes (and solutions) to economic disadvantage in the rural United States.
