Ann Owen, the Henry Platt Bristol Professor of Economics, was quoted in a National Public Radio article titled “Workers May Be Missing, or Maybe Just Retiring” that appeared on hundreds of public radio websites across the country on Jan 22. The article, by NPR’s national economics correspondent Marilyn Geewax, analyzed the possible reasons for the nation’s declining unemployment rate. 

"‘The problem is that there are multiple possible explanations’ for why the jobless rate has been falling since 2009,” said Owen in the article. “‘There's no one thing that ties it all up’ and makes it absolutely clear what is happening.”
