Publisher's Note -- Fall '09

September 2009
Social Policy;Fall2009, Vol. 39 Issue 3, p2
Academic Journal
In this article the author discusses how the recession is still going strong in the Fall of 2009 and is still raising many other issues. Although the election of Barack Obama as the U.S. president gave many hope of better times, the economy has failed to improve and unemployment continues to rise. Issues such as health care reform have become very contentious and others such as labor reform and immigration reform won't be dealt with this year. Optimism is hard to find as Sarah Palin's book receives favorable reviews and the Republican Party continues to blame community organization ACORN for stealing the election for Obama. The article also presents information about the articles in this issue.
