As we approach the State Centennial in 2012, Arizona’s economic situation is uncertain. Dr. Timothy Hogan examines our state’s recent economic history, the boom of the 1990s that ended with the “dot.com” collapse and the 2000-2001 recession, followed by the housing/financial sector-driven boom/crash that pushed first Arizona and then the national economy into the severe recession that we are still in the midst of today. Arizona’s economy entered the current recession three months earlier than the national economy, and will likely emerge later. Dr. Hogan looks to Arizona’s economic future and examines the national and local factors and ideologies that impact it.
