Spokane Economy, Spokane economic outlook – from Moody’s Analytics

This is a direct quote from the report:

Strengths

  • High level of industrial diversity.
  • Low cost of doing business.
  • Stable drivers in military and healthcare.
  • Positive net migration trends.

Weaknesses

  • The economy has very few high-paying growth drivers.
  • Unfavorable cost-to-income balance.

The “positive net migration trend” is not currently true if Randy Barcus of Avista is correct in his assessment that inbound migration is now down to a “trickle”. At the link, though, there is a link to data that disagrees with Barcus’ assessment.
