  • • Highlights from the recent Colorado Business Economic Outlook Forum. How did the economy perform over the past year and what lies ahead for 2014?
  • • A closer look specifically at the energy sector and its economic contributions.
  • • How the Leeds School's Business Research Division is using a sophisticated economic modeling tool to assess the impacts of a statewide ban on fracking.
