I didn't say she's a goofy talking head. But she's on the paid speaker circuit, so she's for sale now.

And though she's been better-grounded than some of the others, she's no clairvoyant, either:

Tucker Hart Adams releases 2008 Economic Forecast (http://www.allbusiness.com/economy-economic-indicators/economic-indicators/5253924-1.html - broken link)

"The worst effects of the housing recession will have passed by 2008, Adams predicts..."

There are also calls for slower growth than the others, but growth nevertheless.

I live and work in Pueblo and our retail segment has been not as hard hit as in Colorado Springs and Denver where they have empty strip malls and resturants have not closed and remain busy. Also, the unemployment rate, while hi, has gone up less then the other cities. This just backs up what the ecomonist said in Pueblo and Nevada both backed by major universities.

So you're telling us that you can't fall out of a well. You started with high UE and fought tooth and nail to keep your top spot as the place with the highest UE rate in the state, but because it didn't go up as much as places that started with low UE rates, you did/are doing better. Too...friggin...funny.

There were also less job losses in Saguache (7500 people in the whole county) than in Pueblo. I guess from that you'd conclude they're doing even better than you...

Nope it is all based on percentage and different size towns are taken into consideration.

So, if Pueblo is not doing better then the Springs or Denver why is it we have no empty strip malls and resturants have not closed and are busy?

I am not saying its been hard as all of Colorado has been hit I am just saying that Pueblo has been hit less hard and that is proven by a few studied backed by major universities.

Talking Order brightens Vestas outlook

Speaking of a improved economy this was in today's Pueblo Chieftain and is good news for Vesta's and Pueblo as well as the other Colorado Cities vesta's is in!

The order for 33 wind turbines likely will come to the Colorado plants, including the company's new Pueblo tower plant, but a firm date for the start of production remains uncertain, Vestas executives said.

You sound like an inexperienced farmer counting his chickens before they hatch. Back in the days of my short-lived, highly unsuccessful career in commissioned sales, my sales manager always used to tell me this:
Until you've CLOSED the deal, you ain't got a deal....and you don't get paid!

True, but this is a good sign to have a order. Simply stated no orders mean no deal's to sign!

Not necessarily! Using health care reform as an example: All the work ( I'm using the term work very loosely here, so all of you who actually work for a living please do not be offended ) that congress did on health care reform might have been a good sign a few weeks ago, but last months good sign probably won't amount to a hill of beans. Good signs don't always become the reality that seems so good in the sign stage. For the sake of fairness, I might add....and sometimes they do!

So you're telling us that you have no empty spaces in any of your malls, and that no restaurants have closed in Pueblo since this started? I double-dawg dare you to make that statement. (I have pictures)

Perhaps I stated it wrong. We have some empty spaces such as the old circut city and the mall does as well but we have no 100% empty strip malls and our mall is still making money while other malls in the state are having issues.

As far as resturants I can't think of one that closed due to the recession but I could be wrong....
