Online PR News – 14-July-2010 – – WILMINGTON, DE -- Chip Flowers, Democratic candidate for State Treasurer, just released his initial 'Delaware Economic Index,' an example of the easy-to-use data he plans on offering Delawareans if he's victorious in November's election.

The four-page report consists of figures and observations on unemployment, housing, consumer confidence, interest rates, state spending and private sector business action in Delaware. The data was gathered from a variety of from federal, state and private sources. The 'Delaware Economic Index' is a forerunner of the financial early warning system the candidate described in the Flowers Framework for Restoring Prosperity, his campaign plan for strengthening the State Treasurer’s office.

The index describes Delaware’s economy as 'weak,' Flowers said, since unemployment remains high (8.8 percent statewide), federal stimulus funds to the state are decreasing and the state’s gross domestic product (GDP) is projected to stay stagnant for the rest of the year.
