Pierce County Economic Index Report Releaesd

This morning, about 550 concerned business and civic leaders heard both the annual Pierce County Economic Index Report and an economic outlook from departing Dr. Arun Raha.

Professors Dr. Bruce Mann and Doug Goodman, University of Puget Sound, presented the 24th annual PCEI, a forecast of the economic well-being of Tacoma-Pierce County.  Their report is available here.

In one sentence:  Expect continuing, although slow economic recovery and growth, better than the national experience.
