WTF? This data released is for 2008, comparing 2008 to 2007. A little irrelevant to what's happening right now, wouldn't ya think?

I will admit its a little old but the latest data we have and it was during the recession as it started in 2007. So while 2009 numbers will be interesting to see these are not totally irrelevant.

It's nearly totally irrelevant. The economic landscape in Colorado (and the US) has changed nearly completely since 2007-2008, with much more traumatic changes likely ahead in the next year or two--and they are not going to be pleasant changes. Two decades or more of near total mismanagement of both this country's natural and financial resources are now starting to bear their bitter fruit. We have not even begun to address those abuses, and--in fact--what has been done of late is likely only to aggravate the problems and make things stay very bad for much longer. Singing "Tiptoe Through the Tulips" is not going to make things any better, especially if one is dancing in a minefield.

Exclamation Solar plant cool on Springs

This is a update on the proposed new solar manufacturing plant in Colorado. With Colorado Springs out of the running its down to two areas: The Pueblo MSA or the Denver MSA. We should know soon. This article, also, talks about the issues Colorado Springs faces and must change if they want to start attracting alternative energy companies.

COLORADO SPRINGS —Colorado Springs appears to be holding the short straw as a renewable energy company decides where to locate an assembly plant. Fowler and Pueblo also are finalists for the plant.

Unless they took the quotes out of context and no one from Colorado Springs or Helios has said they did then I would suspect it must be true!

A newspaper is equivalent to a modern day bible. Everything printed in the newspaper can be considered a divine message. Newspapers always print THE truth and nothing but THE truth. But TV is even more reliable. If it's on TV it absolutely has to be true. They would never allow a lie to be told on TV. That's why politicians like to be on TV. It is the best outlet to get THEIR version of the truth across to the public.

Exclamation Recession over

By definition when there is 3 consecutive quarters of growth in the GDP the economy is out of a recession. That happened when the GDP grew by 3.2% in the 1st quarter. Why is that important to us in Colorado? That is because there are many large and small developments where the developers are waiting on the national economy to improve before they start. One large devlopment is Pueblo Springs that is 24,000 acres and when it starts will create thousands of construction jobs then bring in thousands of primary jobs to southern Colorado helping the economy of two of the states largest MSA's, Pueblo and Colorado Springs.

This is the news report of the GDP:

Gross domestic product, the broadest measure of economic activity, rose at a 3.2 percent annual rate in the first three months of the year, the government said Friday. That was the third straight quarter of increase, driven by a rise in spending by American consumers and increased business investment.

Now obviously the Colorado economy has a long recovery ahead but being out of the recession is a good mile stone.
