• 2015 Alaska's Construction Spending Forecast Presentation

      "MacKinnon, John; Guettabi, Mouhcine"; Construction Industry Progress Fund (CIPF); Associated General Contractors (AGC) of Alaska; Northrim Bank ("Institute of Social and Economic Research, University of Alaska Anchorage", 2015)
      "Construction spending in Alaska in 2015 is expected to be strong in spite of the drop in the price of oil from more than $100 per barrel in the summer of 2014 to between $45 and $50 today. However, the longer the price stays low, the greater the risk that some projects will be cancelled or postponed. It is impossible to predict what will happen to the oil price, because world supply has outstripped demand. The price will stabilize, and perhaps begin to increase, only when the low price stimulates more demand and eliminates high cost production, a process that could take more than a year. Presented in Anchorage, AK on Jan 29, 2015, and in Fairbanks, AK on Jan 30, 2015."

    • Alaska Demographic, Economic, and Social Trends

      Goldsmith, Scott (Institute of Social and Economic Research, University of Alaska., 2001)
      This presentation outlines key developments in Alaska's development and potential directions for future development based on demographic, economic and social trends. At statehood the economy was dominated by the federal government, but today, at least in the larger communities, it looks surprisingly like the rest of the US. Booms and busts have and continue to exert a strong influence on the economy, particularly on regional economies, in spite of this maturation. The Petroleum Cycle has been the single most important economic event since statehood. Oil with a market value of about $250 billion has been produced from the NS. Production peaked in the late 1980s and the price peaked at $60 (NS delivered to the lower 48) in the early 1980s. We have had our share of happy events ranging from high oil prices when production was high to a high flying stock market when we had a Permanent Fund to invest, to a powerful congressional delegation when Washington had $$ to distribute. Now that we look more like the rest of the US and economic growth has slowed, we can should take stock of where we are. There are a number of surprises.

    • Alaska Salmon Management Economic, Social, Political Complexity

      Ulmer, Fran (Institute of Social and Economic Research, University of Alaska., 2007)
      Alaska’s seafood industry is world-scale. The value of fish harvests was about $900 million in 2001. About $1.3 billion in value was added in fish processing. The seafood industry is particularly important for rural Alaska. Fishing is the most important source of income, taxes, infrastructure and utilities for coastal communities--and an important part of Alaska culture. However, many fishermen and the majority of fish processing workers are non-residents, and most of the large companies in the seafood industry are based outside Alaska. Alaska salmon are harvested in 27 different limited entry fisheries.These fisheries differ widely in gear type, species harvested, volume harvested, values of harvest, number of permit holders, average earnings and average permit value—and in how well or poorly the management system is working. This presentation explores aspects of Alaska's history, constitution, statutes, and state regulatory bodies in the management system (state water jurisdiction).
