How Strong Is Arizona's Economy Right Now?

Arizona’s economy is in growth mode, but there are still questions about whether there’s enough diversity when it comes to the kinds of industries that excel here. In addition, the recent #RedForEd movement has starkly illustrated concerns about how the state has funded K-12 education as well as higher education.

So how strong is Arizona’s fiscal condition now, and how much has changed in the past four decades?

To talk about that, The Show turned to economist Dan Anderson. For years, he was with the arizona Department of Economic Security, most recently retiring from his role as director of institutional analysis with the Arizona Board of Regents.

Steve Goldstein was a host at KJZZ from 1997 to 2022.
