Arizona had the fourth highest percentage of job creation in the country last year, just behind Nevada, Utah and Idaho. Arizona was also the fourth fastest state for population growth last year.

Those are among the findings presented on Thursday at the 2019 Economic Outlook Lunch sponsored by ASU’s W.P. Carey School of Business.

The Show spoke with two of the presenters: Lee McPheters, director of the JP Morgan Chase Economic Outlook Center, and Dennis Hoffman, director of the Seidman Institute — both at the W.P. Carey School.
