Colorado Economy to Improve in 2012

CU economist Richard Wobbekind says Colorado's economy is expected to grow faster than most other states next year.

The University of Colorado’s annual economic forecast released Monday offers a mixed-bag looking ahead to 2012.  Much of it depends on what part of the state you live in and in what line of work you’re in.  Economists expect farming to continue to be the bright spot, while other sectors such as construction and tourism and hospitality may continue to sputter.  But as KUNC's Kirk Siegler reports, overall, the forecast is much brighter than at the height of the recession.
