In Case You Missed It: University of Wisconsin’s CROWE featured on CNN


CNN Tonight recently featured Noah Williams, an economics professor at the University of Wisconsin, and director of UW’s Center for Research on the Wisconsin Economy (CROWE).

The Center is using cellphone data to forecast the impact COVID-19 will have on various sectors of the state’s economy, including retail and manufacturing. Williams and his team have forecasted a 60 percent decline in manufacturing activity, an impact Williams said would be “crushing” since manufacturing “is the backbone of the state.”
