Midwest Economy Gathers Momentum

May 2014

The Midwest continues to gain traction in its economic recovery and economists generally have a positive outlook for more growth ahead in 2014. "Right now in Iowa all sectors are hitting on full cylinders," says Debi Durham, Director of the Iowa Economic Development Authority. Even during the recession, Iowa is one state that fared better than most. The state was able to rely on its solid agriculture base and a good export market for those ag products to help weather the recession. "That was a way of really keeping our economy very, very strong," says Durham.
