Elkhart County, Ind. Our reporting partners at The Elkhart Truth are taking a look at the people and the events of the recession, and how it shaped Elkhart County, in their feature "Five Years Later".
By October of 2008, the New York Times called Elkhart “the white-hot center of the meltdown of the American economy”.
According to the Truth, part one of "Five Years Later" examines the first half of 2014 through individual stories of triumph and struggle, and takes a closer look at what the local and national data tells us about the current health of our economy.
Part two will be out in the fall and will look back at how individuals, businesses, schools and governments responded when the economy collapsed.
The final part will anticipate what our future could hold.
