New Mexico's Economy Tanking

Despite a 3.1 percent unemployment rate, things are looking bad

Year-to-year job growth only .5 percent



New Mexico's economy slowed dramatically in the past year. Job growth was only a half percent, or 4,400 jobs. Just about all industry sectors showed weak growth.

We'll talk about the slowing economy on Sunday's Eye on New Mexico program.

Nicole Brady and I will be joined by economists Larry Waldman of the University of New Mexico's Bureau of Business and Economic Research, and Gerry Bradley from New Mexico Voices for Children.

The show airs at 10 a.m. Sunday on KOB-TV, Channel 4
