Perfect Forecast for Washington State Economy

"Conerly hits forecast bullseye for Washington" was the bold-font headline in Western Blue Chip Economic Indicators.  Seems I was the only forecaster from any of the ten states covered who nailed the numbers perfectly.  To tell you truth, the difference between me and folks who were half a percentage point away is mostly luck.  But I’ll take credit for it anyway.

The Western Blue Chip publication takes the consensus economic approach to state-level forecasts.  If you need to understand what’s going on in one of the states, take a look at it.

States covered are Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Texas, Utah and Washington.
