Downturn

According to a new poll by Roby Brock at TalkBusiness, most Arkansans feel that the state's economy is headed headed for a downturn, even though a majority (57 percent) also think their personal situation is good.

Compared to our July TBQ Poll, there is a small shift in pessimism towards the state’s economy. The same percentage of respondents described the Arkansas economy as strong or in a recovery three months ago; however, more poll participants now feel that economic conditions are either approaching a recession, in a recession or in a depression. Overall, 70% describe the Arkansas economy in a negative light.
