13 Florida’s Financial Future: Dr. James Zingale

14 A History of Recessions Since the Great Depression… State Budget Assessment

15 *Current Recovery: 5 years

16 Economic Recovery Florida growth rates are gradually returning to more typical levels. However, drags are more persistent than past events. It will take a few more years to climb completely out of the recession hole. A national economic recovery is well underway. Most areas of commercial and consumer credit are strengthening, though residential credit remains sluggish and difficult to access.

17 Economic Recovery  Most personal income metrics and all of the tourism counts exceeded prior peaks  Other measures posted solid year-over-year improvements, even if they were below peak performance levels By the close of FY 13/14, several key measures of Florida’s economy had returned to (or surpassed) prior peaks: Current Forecast: No key construction metric shows a return to peak levels until 2022/2023

18 Florida Population Economic Outlook

19 Population Growth  Growth is expected to continue, with rates increasing over the next few years  The future will be different than the past (Long-term growth rate between 1970 and 1995 was over three percent.)

Florida on track to break 20 million prior to April 2016, surpassing New York to become third most populous state
