June 4, 2012
S.C. Comptroller General Richard Eckstrom - a retired Naval officer and former state treasurer who also serves as a brigadier general in (and commander of) the S.C. State Guard - sits down for a two-part discussion with publisher Alan Cooper.
In part one, Brig. Gen. Eckstrom discusses the State Guard, S.C.'s all-volunteer state defense force and its relevency and importance in the post-9/11 world.
In part two, Eckstrom talks about the state's financial health. "Over the past eight months, we have seen a definite recovery in the state economy. Revenues have increased sharply. What an amazing shot in the economic arm Boeing is for the state economy."
