Costs of Alaska’s Economic Roller Coaster

Sunday, January 27th, 4 – 6 pm

We’ve been
here before. Petroleum revenues have
benefitted Alaska greatly, but these revenues are highly volatile and largely
at the whim of global forces beyond state control.
Common Ground recognizes that to achieve a strong and stable economy our state
will need an ongoing income stream large enough to pay for essential state
governmental services. This event will examine the costs of a start-and-stop
economy and the benefits of a stable source of state income.
