It’s a short 17 page slide show that encapsulates the most important factors driving the Alaska economy.
The State and Federal budget only account for under 10% each of our total gross state product, and the private sector accounts for about 81%. The author, Bob Heinrich of ConocoPhillips, suggests that Alaskans need to broaden their focus and not look through the prism of Juneau, rather what’s best for the overall economy. This includes high-paying jobs in the private sector, opportunities for construction and service-based industries, and infrastructure development projects.
Nice overview on Alaska’s economy.
