Hawaii Economic Forecast Update:
No Quick Recovery from Hawai‘i Recession

Posted November 21, 2008 | Categories: Forecasts, Hawaii's Economy

The global financial crisis and widening global downturn have materially worsened prospects for the Hawai‘i economy. Economic conditions are now poor in virtually every visitor market, and as a result we expect the current sharp tourism downturn to continue well into next year, with no significant recovery until 2010. Moderate contraction of the construction industry and the developing state fiscal crunch will also weigh on the local economy. The Hawai‘i economy is now in recession, and as the downturn continues into 2009 we will see larger job and income losses than we have experienced to date.
