Joan Cartan-Hansen and her guests - Mike Ferguson, Director for the Idaho Center for Fiscal Policy; Steve Cooke, retired professor of economics from the University of Idaho; and Cheryl Brush, Assistant Deputy Director for Work Force Development from the Idaho Department of Labor - look at the state's current economic trends.
