Growing New Mexico's Economy
KUNM Call In Show 2/5 8a:
New Mexico's economy is heavily reliant on government jobs, tourism and oil and gas revenues. It's stagnant now and many forecasts predict more of the same. What are lawmakers in Santa Fe proposing to stimulate business activity and job growth? Are any NM communities demonstrating economic success, and what can we learn from them?
We'd like to hear from you! Email firstname.lastname@example.org, post your comments online or call in live during the show.
