Economic Trends 2010

The Federal Reserve Economic Index shows Idaho's economy has remained stable since last fall. Personal income rates and housing starts are both predicted to rise in 2010. Will this slow growth really make a difference to your pocketbook? Will state and federal efforts to spur job growth make a difference in the unemployment rate?

Host Joan Cartan-Hansen speaks with leading economists about the state of Idaho's fiscal health. Guests include Don Holley, Chair of the Department of Economics at Boise State University; Mike Ferguson, Chief Economist, Idaho's Division of Financial Management; Richard Gardner, Senior Fellow, Bootstrap Solutions; and Steve Peterson, Economist, University of Idaho.
