Panelists on the latest By The Numbers show agreed: Job-creation numbers for the first 21 months of Gov. Scott Walker's administration make it likely that the Republican governor can't achieve his goal of 250,000 new private-sector jobs by 2015 -- no matter which sets of numbers are used. The reasons for that, and a Brookings Institution report rating the recovering economies of Milwaukee and Madison in the bottom one-third of 100 large American cities, were also discussed during the Sept. 27 show. Panelists were Laura Dresser of the Center on Wisconsin Strategy, economist Clare Zempel, retired business executive Tom Hefty and Abdur Chowdhury, chair of Marquette University's Economics Department.
