How can the government spur job growth? Two top economists weigh in

According to a report issued by the U.S. Department of Labor on Friday, the economy added 117,000 jobs last month and the unemployment rate fell slightly to 9.1 percent.

While these figures were better than expected, many Americans, particularly those 14 million who are out of work, continue to wonder when progress will be made in creating jobs.

Today on American Morning, Mark Zandi, chief economist for Moody's Analytics, and Christian Weller, senior fellow for the Center for American Progress, join Christine Romans to discuss what could spur job growth and to weigh in on how the White House is proposing to tackle unemployment.
