War. Capture. Plant closings. The digital economy. Flu. Life sciences. An aging baby-boom. Prescription drug bill. A beloved Governor dies. An ex-POW takes the reigns. Morton Marcus “retires” after three decades of service to Indiana, but continues to expound on the good and bad about our state. What a year 2003 has been. What ups and downs will 2004 bring? These pages can’t provide an answer to that question. But a cadre of economists provide us with insights into what 2004 will bring in terms of economic growth—worldwide, nationally, and within the environs of Indiana itself. These experts from our institutions of higher education bring a wealth of expertise to the question of how the economy will perform in the coming year as we work through what is dubbed the jobless recovery, a phrase that evokes both concern and optimism. Read on and learn what 2004 may bring.
