For the Record
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are one hundred economists in the state of Indiana. A quick perusal of the Economists@Indiana University web page reveals forty-four economists on the Bloomington campus of Indiana University alone, with at least six more at the various other IU campuses. Therefore, an astounding 50 percent of the state's economists are part of the Indiana University network. What better testament that both the Annual Outlook Tour (since 1972) and the annual outlook edition of the IBR originate from this university?
Revealed within these pages are closely observed details on the entire spectrum of economies affecting Hoosiers. The authors have spent considerable time researching and analyzing past economic events in order to forecast what we may face in the next year.
A talented cadre of economic experts share their expertise with the citizens of Indiana in broad (the tour traveled to ten Hoosier cites in just two weeks) and accessible ways (the written forecasts appear in print and on the web), making significant and noteworthy contributions to this state and its economic development. —COR
