CARY -- N.C. State University economist Mike Walden is predicting  the Research Triangle will take between 33 percent and 40 percent of all new jobs in North Carolina this year.

Raleigh-Cary has regained about 85 percent of the jobs it lost in the recession, compared to about 44 percent statewide.
