Arizona's economic recovery is flattening out statewide, with job growth outside the Phoenix metro area for this year and next predicted to be anemic.
Tribal gaming revenues in Arizona slipped a bit last quarter over the same time a year earlier, the first time that's happened in more than two years.
About 15 years ago I had what I believed to be the solution to our incredibly poor record of electing government officials of — how do the appliance makers refer to it? — quality and reliability:
New unemployment numbers released Thursday suggest the state's economic recovery is weakening.
Hundreds of teachers at religious schools around the state could soon be at risk of being laid off with no prospect of collecting jobless benefits.

“I had no idea!”
Social Security, when it began, wasn’t a bad idea. The problem is what it has morphed into. We should get back to the “safety-net” that it was intended to be in the first place. But any changes should be “fair” to everyone. SS is a good (not great) program for the poorer citizens, but it’s a lousy “investment vehicle” for the more affluent. We could start by freezing the “top” benefit payment, and only increase payments for those not yet at the maximum level, until everyone is receiving the current maximum benefit. At the same time we could slowly start decreasing payroll tax rates (at a revenue neutral rate) back down towards the 1% where SS started out at. This would increase everyone’s paycheck, raise benefits for those who need it, and after a couple of generations it would bring the SS program back to the safety-net that it was intended to be. And as for those currently receiving the maximum benefit, start by gradually lowering the tax rates on benefits until SS benefits are back to being tax-free, just like when it started out.

Dear Debt Adviser: I have read a lot on whether it is wise to withdraw 401(k) savings early to pay off debts. The answer is always no. But I believe my situation may be different. Our two-income household has suddenly become one-income. Even if a new job is found, a pay cut is inevitable. Unemployment doesn’t even cover food and gasoline.
I am so tempted to write the words “I told you so” over and over again up to the 500-word limit allowed for a commentary in this newspaper. It would be so easy to gloat about how liberals won and conservatives lost. It would make me giddy to point out how Arizona is so out-of-touch with the rest of the Left Coast.
