UA economist and EBR Center director George Hammond said “The Arizona economy continues to grow and improve in early 2013, but the pace overall is slow compared to historical standards,” “The outlook calls for the state to gather speed during the next two years, but only after another year of sluggish gains.”
While the tourism industry, call centers and healthcare industry have been hiring. The challenge for Arizona’s economy is securing more high-wage job growth.
Hammond expects more sustained economic growth in 2014 and 2015 both for jobs and the overall economic picture.
