It’s a week of economic forecasting in Arizona. On Monday, Lee McPheters of ASU’s W.P. Carey School said that 2017 should be a year of job growth for Arizona with the state’s unemployment rate dropping below 5 percent.

On Friday in southern Arizona, the Eller School at the University of Arizona held its Economic Outlook luncheon.

We talked with George Hammond of the Eller School about expectations for job growth in 2017 and which industries should excel.
