The Arizona economy continues to churn out solid gains, even as concerns about water sustainability surge. Both population and jobs rose at a pace faster than the U.S. in 2023. Income also continued to rise, outpacing decelerating inflation. Housing affordability remained low with elevated house prices and increased mortgage interest rates. Housing permit activity declined last year but outperformed expectations.

Where are the global, national, state, and local economies headed next? How will Arizona’s water issues impact economic development and housing? Will restrictive monetary policy succeed in bringing inflation down without causing a recession? Will housing affordability continue to plummet? How much will manufacturing jobs rise? What role do local and state water policies play in all of this?
