On New Year’s Day, proud southerners across our nation (including myself) carry on the tradition of eating black-eyed peas. Legend has it that eating them on January 1, will bring good luck and prosperity throughout the coming year. Well, I sure could use some good fortune and more money, so I will definitely eat some. In fact, judging by this past year, perhaps all Floridians should join in this custom! 2011 has been quite a year for our state. The unemployment rates continued to be troublesome and the housing market has still not come close to recovering. We still have a long way to go, but we are starting to make progress. I’m not sure if eating black-eyed peas will really help our luck at all, but it can’t hurt. And they taste good, so why not?! I wish you all a Happy New Year and I look forward to addressing you again in 2012! Sincerely,

Foard F. Jones Interim Dean

It will be the 3rd quarter of 2016 before payrolls recover to their pre-recession levels. • The size of the labor force is a huge wild card in predicting the future path for the unemployment rate. When and to what extent discouraged workers begin to reenter the labor force will be a key to predicting the unemployment rate. • Unemployment rates will continue a long, slow decline through 2014. The emphasis is, unfortunately, still on slow - it will be 2014 Q4 before we see unemployment fall below 9%. Underemployment (U-6) currently stands at 18.2%. • The sectors expected to have the strongest average growth during 2011-2014 are Professional and Business Services (3.9%); Trade, Transportation & Utilities (2.8%); Leisure & Hospitality (2.6 %) and Education & Health Services (2.1%). • Florida’s housing construction sector hit the bottom of the Marianas Trench in 2009 and has been wallowing in that trough for nearly two years. Housing starts will climb to a slightly higher plateau in 2012 and begin to progress in 2013. Total starts at an annual rate will break 100,000 in the 1st quarter of 2014 for the first time since the 2nd quarter of 2007. • Real Gross State Product (RGSP) will expand just 0.7% in 2011, and then accelerate to 1.7% in 2012, 2.4% in 2013, and 3.9% in 2014. • Real personal income growth turned positive in 2010. From 2011-2014, real personal income growth will average 4.4%, and will peak at 5.5% in 2014. • Florida’s population growth will continue to pick up in 2011. By 2014, the growth rate should hit 1.7% as the economy improves and net migration swells as Baby Boomers’ retirements come to fruition. • 2011 retail sales should finish much stronger for the year. Retail sales will grow at an average pace of 4.9% during 2012-2014 after growing in 2011 at the fastest rate since 2005.

Florida & Metro Forecast Published in Florida

DEAR Professor Snaith: I am 8 years old. Some of my little friends from Occupy Florida say there is no economic recovery in Florida. Papa says, ‘If you see it in The Florida & Metro Forecast it’s so.’ Please tell me the truth; is there an economic recovery in Florida? VIRGINIA O’HANLON 115 WEST NINETY-FIFTH STREET APALACHICOLA, FLORIDA

Yes, Virginia, There is an Economic Recovery in Florida Virginia, your little friends from the drum circle are wrong. They have been affected by the skepticism of a skeptical age, and they do not believe except [what] they see on MSNBC. They think that nothing can be which is not comprehensible by their little minds, like our nation’s financial system for example. All minds, Virginia, whether they be economists’ or children’s (but especially economists’) are little. In this great economy of ours, man is a mere insect, an ant, in his intellect, as compared with the boundless world about him, as measured by the intelligence capable of grasping the whole of truth and knowledge. Yes, Virginia, there is an economic recovery in Florida. It exists as certainly as weapons of mass destruction in Iraq; as certainly as love,

generosity, devotion and fiscal austerity in Washington DC exist; and you know that they abound and give to your life its highest beauty and joy. Every recession is followed by a recovery; this is the way of the business cycle. Every business cycle is unique like a snowflake and like you Virginia, so no two recoveries will be exactly alike. Alas! How dreary would be the Sunshine State if there were no economic recovery in Florida. It would be as dreary as if there were no Virginias or Alexandras or Jessicas or Nicks or Sangithas or Elaines. There would be no childlike faith then, no poetry, no chance I will regain any of my home equity, no romance to make tolerable this existence. We should have no enjoyment, except in sense and sight. The eternal light with which economics fills the world would be extinguished. Not believe in Florida’s economic recovery?! You might as well not

December 2011

believe in fairies! You might get your papa to hire men to try and count the number of jobs saved by the stimulus package, but even if they could not accurately count them (Perhaps the fairies’ jobs were saved?), what would that prove? Nobody knows what a job saved looks like, but that is no sign that there is no economic recovery. The most real things in the world are those that neither children nor men nor economists can see. Did you ever see fairies or an economist dancing on the lawn? Of course not, but that’s no proof that they are not there nor is it justification for my not being invited back to my neighbor’s Christmas party this year. Nobody can conceive or imagine all the unseen or unseeable wonders in the world and I think I am a pretty good dancer to boot. You may tear apart the baby’s rattle and see what makes the noise inside, but there is a veil covering the unseen world which not the strongest man, nor even the united strength of all the strongest men that ever lived, could tear apart. Only faith, fancy, poetry, love, romance, and economics can push aside that curtain and view and picture the supernal beauty and glory beyond. Is it all real? Ah, Virginia, in all this world there is nothing else as real and abiding as the business cycle. No economic recovery! Thank God! The economic recovery lives, albeit in a weakened state. A thousand business cycles from now, Virginia, nay, ten times ten thousand business cycles from now, recoveries will continue to make glad the heart of childhood.

Flor ida’s H ousin g M a r k e t Figures 1 and 2 display monthly data for the market for single-family existing homes as released by the Florida Realtors through October 2011. The darker and smoother line in each graph is the 12-month moving average of each of the unadjusted monthly series which are shown with a lighter and more seasonally variable line.

The 12-month moving average of sales (Figure 1) resumed an upward trajectory after oscillating a bit in the wake of the expiration of the FirstTime Homebuyer’s Tax Credit program. Sales for 2011 through October are on average higher than the average sales through October for 2010. The willingness of banks to allow short sales will speed up transactions of distressed properties and help keep this momentum in place.

Median prices (Figure 2) have not definitively reached a bottom. They will continue their multiyear decline. The rate at which the 12-month moving average of median prices is declining has slowed, but unfortunately has not yet stopped. More progress will need to be made in Florida’s labor market before a stable bottom for housing prices can be formed.

Outloo k for Flo rida 201 1 - 201 4 Florida’s Economic Outlook is Slowly Improving Robust Economic Growth? Still Two Years Away

2011 was anticipated to be a stronger follow up to the weak economic growth Florida experienced in 2010, the first year of our state’s economic recovery. The best laid plans of mice and men and economic recoveries often go astray. 2011, instead of a year of gaining momentum, has turned out to be one in which the economy came perilously close to stall speed.

The U.S. economy faltered in the first half of the year for a number of reasons, many centering on the staggering federal budget deficit and the mounting national debt. Real GDP growth was anemic and Florida’s economy lost momentum as well. Growth of Florida’s real GDP decelerated as well, falling to a level that is roughly half of the 2010 growth rate. Bursts of activity in the leisure and hospitality sector were among the few bright spots that the economy displayed this year, but rather than a sun

that shone consistently these were more like the twinkling of a distant star. This is, of course, better than a starless, black sky hanging over the economy, but we continue to wait for sunrise to arrive and warm Florida’s chilly economy.

Unfortunately, 2012 will not be the dawn of that day as the year is shaping up to be another year of subpar growth. Growth, to be sure, will continue and 2012 will be an improvement over a largely disappointing 2011 but economic growth for the year will sub 2.0% and payrolls will expand by just 1.8%.

This economic growth will accelerate into 2013 and 2014 eventually helping the labor market to progress along its own longer and more difficult path to recovery, and even the beleaguered construction sector will begin to see job growth by 2013. The only sector expected to consistently lose jobs through 2014 is the federal government. Fiscal austerity has, after a long absence, returned to the center ring of our political circus. The near term economic picture for Florida is for a modest acceleration of the pace of recovery, including the labor market over the next two quarters. A healthy labor market is the cornerstone for Florida’s overall economic recovery. Job creation, a falling unemployment rate, and a growing labor force are the trifecta of a healthy labor market. While we have had months where these indicators have registered the correct reading, we have not seen this on a consistent basis. When we do, we can be assured that the labor market recovery is underway and sustainable. The labor market’s recovery will help boost sales tax revenues via higher retail sales and more discretionary spending in general helping to ease budget crunches in Tallahassee. As we have discussed in previous Florida forecasts, the housing market’s recovery as well is intertwined with that of the labor market.

There continues to be a reason to be optimistic about Florida’s economic recovery. Jobs are being created and population growth is expected to slowly 8

Florida & Metro Forecast - December 2011

accelerate over the next three years. The damage to our economy from the recession, housing, and financial crises was severe and the process of rebuilding will take time.

Gross State P roduct Real Gross State Product (GSP) in Florida, the state-level analogue to Real GDP, shifted from contraction to expansion in 2010. Growth was modest last year and became even more so in 2011 with full year growth expected to come in at just 0.7%. To put that in perspective, at the height of the housing boom in 2005 Real GSP grew at 6.1%. Not all recoveries are created equal.

In 2013, confidence and a burgeoning labor market recovery will both be in place along with more robust growth of 2.4% and finally back to some Florida-like growth in 2014 when Real GSP is expected to grow 3.9%

The burden of lost wealth Florida’s consumers have to overcome in most cases is substantially higher than consumers in states around the nation and housing prices continue to drift downward. The destruction of wealth that these price declines encapsulate has left a gaping wound on the balance sheet of Florida’s households. However, as 2012 gives way to 2013 and beyond, the economy will begin to grow more rapidly and labor markets will continue to heal; housing prices should stabilize and stop the further erosion of wealth.

Nominal Gross State Product is expected to reach nearly $868.3 billion in 2014, as Florida progresses toward becoming a trillion-dollar economy. The state will likely cross that threshold five years from now in 2017. Florida’s economy is one of the largest in the world and is expected to grow even larger in the years ahead. Demographics and international drivers for the state will help power its economy forward.


F l o r id a S umm a r y

P ersona l I n com e , R e ta i l Sale s , a n d Au to Sa l e s Personal income growth quarter-over-quarter decelerated in the second half of 2011 in Florida. It is expected to increase by just $1.8 billion in the 3rd quarter and $6.3 billion in the 4th quarter after having increased $22.1 billion in the first half of the year. Year-over-year growth will be higher through 2011, lose a bit of momentum in 2012 and 2013 before personal income growth accelerates into 2014 when it is expected to grow 5.5%.

Personal income growth will lag that of the nation as a whole through 2011. In 2012 the positions are reversed, and Florida outpaces the nation with personal income growth that is an average of 0.3% higher than the nation through 2014. 2012 will be the first time since 2006 that personal income growth in Florida has been higher than the national rate. Personal income will reach nearly $856 billion in 2014 - a year that will boast growth of $44.3 billion. Real disposable income growth, which also has been depressed by the struggling economy, increased to just 1.5% in 2010, but this was the first acceleration of growth since 2006. This growth of real disposable income should persist through the next two years. In 2011, growth should come in at 1.0% and rise to 2.0% in 2012. Average growth during 2012-2014 will be 2.2%.

The stock market has made a strong recovery from the lows of the financial crisis. The European crisis hit financial markets, and in the 3rd quarter household wealth declined as financial asset values shrunk. A resumption of price appreciation in the stock market will help to recoup wealth that has still not been recovered from the stock market’s pre-crisis highs. The housing market in Florida has had no such luck, and housing prices still seem to be struggling to find a bottom. The lost home equity (roughly $1 trillion) could take decades to recover. In Florida, consumers have little choice when it comes to trying to rebuild their wealth other than to save

more of their income and to try to restore what was lost. This negative wealth effect will continue to weigh upon consumer spending for years.

Florida’s persistent double-digit unemployment will also continue to weigh on consumer spending in Florida. As the labor market shifts into a mode where private sector job creation begins, it will further help lift consumer confidence and spending. Nothing puts one in a mood to spend as much as changing status from unemployed to employed, new hiring and a feeling of job security for those who have remained employed. However, these feelings will help to unlock some of the pent-up consumer spending that resulted from prior job worries.

High oil and gasoline prices have receded and Florida’s consumers and economy will benefit in the 2nd half of 2011. This decline in gasoline prices has a two-pronged effect on the Florida forecast as the additional boost of receding oil prices on tourism creates a double whammy for the Florida economy. Retail sales in Florida will grow at 7.4% in 2011, in part due to higher gasoline expenditures as a result of rising prices earlier in the year. Once the labor market has fully embarked on its long path to recovery, retail spending will begin to recover in other areas as well. We expect retail sales to expand an average of 5.49% in 2011-2014. The average growth rate of retail sales will be nearly 4.85% during the 2012-2014 time frame. Although retail sales growth will not reach the levels experienced during the height of the housing and economic boom, it should help to alleviate the budget woes in Tallahassee in 2012 and 2013.

As the economy continues to recover, consumers’ pent-up demand for automobiles and light trucks will continue to be released. Replacement need and a sense of stability in the economy are driving this demand. 2010 was the start of a multi-year rise in the number of new passenger car and truck registrations in Florida. Growth will be robust during 2011-2014, averaging nearly 11.5%. In 2014, registrations will reach 1.31 million, representing a 188% increase

from the 2009 nadir but still not higher than the level of registrations during the height of the housing boom (1.449 million). That number will be surpassed in 2016.

Emp loy m e n t Overall payroll employment in the state fell 1.0% for 2010. This was the third consecutive year that payrolls in Florida contracted. From peak month to trough month, Florida shed 920,000 payroll jobs.

Payroll job growth has finally taken root in 2011. Job growth has been tepid in the first half of the year but has gained some momentum in the second half. Full year job growth in 2011 is expected to be 0.8%. In 2012 job growth versus a year ago is expected to come in at 1.8%. This year will also mark the first time since 2006 that job growth in Florida exceeds the national rate of job growth. Payroll job growth will reach 2.3% in 2014 as it steadily accelerates to that point. The long-suffering Construction sector still has another five quarters of job losses before it too joins in the labor market’s recovery. This sector has been shedding jobs profusely after peaking during the housing boom; it will be six straight years of job losses before the turn around in the construction sector gets underway.

Job growth will not return to the Construction sector until the 2nd quarter of 2013; this will be the last private sector of the economy to join in the recovery. Job growth rates are expected to surge from -4.0% in 2012 to 2.3% in 2013 and 13.4% in 2014. The 2014 growth rate appears large but is being calculated from a dramatically lower base of employment in the sector. By the end of 2014, employment in this sector should be back at levels previously reached in 1993.

The Professional and Business Services sector will be the state’s fastest growing sector through 2014. Job growth in this sector is expected to lead the state averaging 3.9% during 2011-2014. Job gains have

10

Florida & Metro Forecast - December 2011

been relatively modest to date but are expected to accelerate. By the first quarter of 2012 job growth in the sector will be 4.3%. For the full year, 2011 will turn in job growth at 1.1% and will accelerate and reach 3.7% in 2012, 4.1% in 2013, and 6.8% in 2014. This sector will recover quickly and will get back to pre-recession peak levels of employment before the end of the 3rd quarter of 2014.

The Information sector shed jobs through the first half of 2011; employment continues to contract in the second half of the year. Recently the Tampa Tribune has announced layoffs of 165 employees. Structural changes in this industry, as technology has evolved and news comes in the form of tweets and blog posts (this is a very liberal definition of what is news) rather than newsprint, haunt this sector, but other sources of growth will eventually help compensate. Job growth should return to the Information sector year-over-year in 2012 and this will be just the second year of job growth in this sector in twelve prior years, including six straight years of net job losses leading up to 2011. Job growth will creep to 0.8% in 2012 as the recovery kicks into gear, and will average 2.0% in 2013-2014. The one sector that has generated jobs throughout the recession and that is expected to continue to expand through the end of 2014 is the Health and Education sector. During 2011-2014, employment in this sector is expected to expand at an average rate of 2.1%. Budget woes will likely constrain employment levels in the education side of the sector and schools face significant revenue shortfalls due to the housing sector’s ongoing malaise. Recent court rulings regarding national healthcare reform as well as a number of pending lawsuits against various aspects of this legislation, including a Supreme Court hearing on the constitutionality of the individual mandate, obscure the future of the healthcare sector. It is still difficult to tell precisely how politics and the legal system will ultimately impact healthcare in Florida. Federal and state budget battles will put Medicare and Medicaid


F l o r id a S umm a r y

expenditures in the spotlight. The focus will necessarily be upon gaining efficiency and controlling the cost of delivering these services. However, with momentum toward expanding coverage and our aging population, it appears that demand for health services will remain strong in the foreseeable future. This demand will continue to drive job growth in this sector. Manufacturing employment expanded weakly in Florida through the first half of 2011 and in the second half of the year growth is expected to wobble. Globalization and productivity gains in manufacturing have reduced employment in this sector for the better part of a decade. The sector is emerging from this period of globalization as competitive as it has been in many years. This improved competitiveness, a weakened dollar especially against emerging market currencies and strong expansions in these same emerging economies will help drive job growth as exports continue to rise. We are expecting to see job growth of 1.8% in this sector for the full year in 2012, followed by a stronger year of job growth in 2013, when manufacturing employment will expand at a rate of 2.0%. Manufacturing is expected to continue to gain jobs in 2014 and job growth is expected to be 2.3%.

The beleaguered public sector has been set upon by budget crunches that run from Tallahassee to Minneola as well as many in politics and the public at large who think the only good government worker is a laid off government worker. Job losses will persist in the sector through 2012 when growth will turn slightly positive and average 0.4% during 2013-2014.

the business cycle overall, but the weak nature of the recovery and the marked uncertainty that seems to permeate the economy have resulted in this especially jobless recovery. Payroll job growth will trigger the reentry of discouraged workers who had abandoned the job search, and in some cases re-discouraged workers that have left and re-entered the labor force on more than one occasion during this business cycle. This source of growth in the labor force, which has not yet appeared as Florida’s labor force continues to shrink, will make the reduction in the unemployment rate a more difficult and prolonged process. It will also make it an uncertain one. At some point, the discouraged workers will become encouraged enough to re-enter the job hunt and this will put upward pressure on the unemployment rate.

The problem of underemployment and marginally attached workers– those who are neither working nor looking for work, but indicate that they want and are available for a job, and have looked for work sometime in the past twelve months— and those who have given up searching for a job entirely, is substantial. Also, as just noted, it is a factor behind the persistently high unemployment rate. When adding these workers to the top-level unemployment figure, this broader measure of unemployment, known as U-6, paints an even grimmer picture of labor markets, and is currently 18.2% through the 3rd quarter of 2011 in Florida, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

U ne mploy m e n t Unemployment rates in Florida remain at high levels, despite the fact that the recovery came to the state in 2010. Real Gross State Product has been growing since the 1st quarter of 2010, admittedly not at a breakneck pace, but despite the recovery the unemployment rate has only been in decline for the past six months.

Rick Scott to distribute $93 million in cash incentives to businesses and created the Department of Economic Opportunity to streamline business development programs. Source: St. Petersburg Times, October 25, 2011 Florida judge: cuts to state employees’ pay violated contract • A Leon County circuit judge told state lawyers that a 3% cut in pay for state and local government workers, shifting the money to the state’s pension fund, broke contracts with state employees. • The Legislature made the pay cuts and eliminated cost of living adjustments in retirement benefits in order to save $1 billion in this year’s budget. • Judge Jackie Fulford did not specify the time when she would release her ruling. Source: St. Petersburg Times, October 26, 2011 Feds., Florida announce major effort to restore River of Grass • The South Florida Ecosystem Restoration Task Force, composed of senior policy officials in the Federal and State governments, announced a fasttrack plan that, when authorized by Congress, will improve the Everglades with more fresh and clean water. • The plan will use recent scientific recommendations to use publicly owned lands for the treatment and storage of water, increase clean water flow to the Everglades and divert pollutants away from the wetlands. Source: EvergladesPlan.org, October 27, 2011 State department to target illegal sales of liquor, tobacco • The Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation’s Division of Alcoholic Beverages and Tobacco is stepping up enforcement of laws regarding the sale of tobacco and alcohol. • The department will be assisting local law

Source: The Florida Independent, November 23, 2011 Daytona Chamber advocates internet sales tax • The Daytona Regional Chamber of Commerce urged state lawmakers to pass legislation requiring online retailers to collect Florida sales tax on purchases from consumers in the state. • Current state law requires residents to pay a “use tax” on online purchases, but collects little revenue from it because purchases are voluntarily reported. • The Chamber argues that it would not be a “new tax,” but closes a loophole for revenue the state should already be collecting, which could raise up to $1.5 billion according to estimates, and that an absence of the tax puts in-state retailers at a price disadvantage.

If they successfully complete this phase, they can apply for Phase II grants for further research, and then Phase III to commercialize the results.

The Deltona–Daytona–Ormond Beach MSA is comprised only of Volusia County. It is located on the east coast of Florida and is notable for special events that occur throughout the year such as Bike Week. It is home to NASCAR headquarters and the Daytona International Speedway, which hosts popular races such as the Daytona 500.

M e t r o N e w s S umm a r i e s Deltona OKs initial version of city ethics ordinance • Two city commissioners pushed for an ordinance that would create a few rules, including disallowing commissioners from intimidating employees with threats of dismissal; belittling any form of business; accepting gifts in exchange for a personal gain; and purposely interrupting public meetings.

• The ordinance bans gifts worth $25 or more. If a worker does receive something of value, the worker must report it and dispose of it, by means such as donating the gift to a charity.

• Deltona wants to send a message that they do take ethics seriously, especially in the wake of disreputable acts in other parts of the government.

FDIC: Local bank has too many risky loans • Florida Citizens Bank, which is based in Gainesville, is under scrutiny from the Federal Deposit Insurance Commission. The FDIC says that the bank has too many risky loans and not enough assets to cover potential losses. The bank has chosen to dispute the FDIC’s claim. • Like many small, local banks, Florida Citizens lends largely to local construction and development projects. Source: Gainesville Sun, October 28, 2011 German firm plans area’s largest solar array • Sybac Solar, a German firm, has arranged for what would be the state’s largest private solar plant at six megawatts to be located in Gainesville. • The firm was brought to Gainesville by the GRU feed-in tariff. The tariff provides incentives for firms to provide solar power.

• The shortage is particularly difficult because the market for horses is currently poor right now, and so owners who cannot afford higher prices do not have the option to sell. Source: Gainesville Sun, November 20, 2011 Development slow to follow as UF’s East Campus grows • The University of Florida’s East Campus, home to its hurricane simulator, The Center for Autism and Related Disabilities, and an executive education program, is expanding to include a new data center. The data center is expected to be complete in November of 2012. • Despite growth in the campus, local businesses complain that they do not see increased business from employees at the complex. Source: Gainesville Sun, December 2, 2011

• Sybac currently has the largest private solar plant in the state, at two megawatts, also located in Gainesville. Source: Gainesville Sun, November 17, 2011 Drought wreaking havoc on local hay growers, buyers • Drought in the southeast and in Texas are causing a shortage of hay in both areas. Texas’s draught set in first, so much of the hay was sent to relieve the market, but the draughts in the southeast caused further shortage. • Prices for hay have increased and local supplies have been nearly halved. Local horse owners are switching to alternative types of feed.

Tortilla maker Mission Foods expanding to Lakeland • Mission Foods, based in Irving, Texas, is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of tortilla products. The company plans to expand into Lakeland in 2012, hiring more than 130 employees over a span of about three years. • Average salaries for employees will be about $30,000. Lakeland and Polk County will support Mission with an estimated $130,000 worth of incentives. • Lakeland Economic Development Council expects Mission to occupy a 168,000-squarefoot warehouse located in Interstate Business Park, close to Pepperidge Farm. Source: The Lakeland Ledger, November 8, 2011 Legoland could help boost Polk tourism through bed tax • The creation of Legoland in Lakeland is expected to boost Polk County’s tourist development tax – often referred to as a bed tax because it is levied on short-term stays in the area - which funds its tourism promotion initiatives and provides economic incentives for attractions that locate in Polk County. • The county commissioners approved an amendment to laws governing the use of these funds which will allow the new revenue to be used to build and promote museums, which were previously excluded from funded projects. Local residents hope the addition of the museums will increase the presence of the arts in Polk County.

Turning down the request could have resulted in a loss of $517,000, a huge economic loss. • Stella Heath requested the contribution for the Ritz to keep the Theatre competitive. Jim Stafford, a nationally-renowned musician, will be attending the Ritz Theatre on December 15-18. Heath told the commissioners that other Central Florida competitors were enticing Stafford, citing the Theatre’s unfinished facilities. • The donation will allow the theater to purchase and install curtains, carpet, and 550 chairs and refurbish the ticket office. Source: The Lakeland Ledger, November 22, 2011 Lakeland Economic Development Council is visiting Silicon Valley • Lakeland’s Economic Development Council’s High Skill/High Wage Investor group visited San Francisco to search for possible ideas and projects to implement in the Lakeland area. • The group toured Stanford University, Facebook, and other hallmarks of the San Francisco area. The council is looking to focus on entrepreneur development, healthcare, education, and downtown redevelopment. • One of the members of the council, Southeastern University’s Brian Carroll, highlighted the way different industries and disciplines work together in order to create growth. He hopes that Lakeland can implement this strategy as well. Source: Lakeland Ledger, December 1, 2011

Florida & Metro Forecast - December 2011

• Most high rise condominium buildings in South Florida have many back-up generators in order to ensure safety in the storm prone area. • Because of the foreclosure rates and the stressed housing market, many of the Condo associations are cutting back on maintenance on the generators. • OK Generators, a company based in Fort Lauderdale, says that around fifty condo clients have canceled their maintenance contracts because of financial troubles. • Many building codes require condos to have back-up generators installed and regularly maintained, but the expensive burden has deterred many condominium buildings from keeping up the generators.

Collier commissioners look to wash hands of money-losing housing program • Collier County has taken part in a few housing programs, including some associated with the Housing, Human and Veterans Services Department. Officials are not happy with the amount of money spent, though grants do cover some of the cost. • The Neighborhood Stabilization Program does not allow counties to make a profit because of the grant’s requirements. But the county has spent $505,278.53, spurring commissioners to leave all housing programs behind. • After an audit, completed by an employee at the Collier Clerk of Courts, revealed that some of the work was incomplete, yet paid in full by the county and the housing department, commissioners asked that no more houses be bought or rehabilitated. Source: Naples News, October 29, 2011 City won’t try to reroute U.S. 41 • Last May, City Council began talks with the Florida Department of Transportation concerning reassignment of U.S. 41. The objective was to create a new road to reduce congestion between Coastland Center mall and Fifth Avenue South. • City Council would like to make the road wellsuited for people in the community. Assistant City Manager Reinke would like to see the city gain control of the road through FDOT’s design for inhabitable community dealings. Then, Naples government and the FDOT can come up with designs that are suited for the “mixed use community, like downtown Naples.” Source: Naples News, November 2, 2011 Manatee Middle program gives students the business skills to succeed • Education leaders, including a professor from Harvard, are encouraging young students to acquire business skills at ages as young as ten. They suggest that teachers start preparing students for real-life careers.

• Manatee Middle School started a program called “Future Business Leaders Club” for seventh-and eighth-grade students. Their most recent field trip was to Fifth Third Bank, where they could ask bankers questions. • The group will be going to different retailers to see how they run a business. The Club plans on learning management theories and the degrees necessary to succeed in different businesses. Source: Naples News, November 13, 2011 Beach access near Moray Bay condos closed again for county improvement project • A stretch of sand along Vanderbilt Beach is closed for a county improvement project. A dozen parking spaces have been replaced with a turnaround area and a handicap accessible drop-off. There will also be a new walkway to the beach and new restrooms. • Tourist development tax revenue is footing $750,000 of the bill, as well as Moray Bay Condominiums supplying $500,000. Public parking will not be as accessible, but there will be spots within a mile of this stretch of beach. Source: Naples News, November 30, 2011 Edison State College Collier Campus opens Student Services building • Edison State College has just completed a new, 23,700 sq-ft. Student Services building. The aesthetically pleasing, energy-efficient building is supposed to allow students to go there for all of their needs. • The new building will have workplaces for administrators and students. There will be a “community room” as well. • The same campus is also looking forward to the completion of the Allen & Marla Weiss Health Sciences Hall, which is to be open in early 2012.

The Palm Bay–Melbourne–Titusville MSA is comprised of Brevard County only. Typically known as “Florida’s Space Coast,” this area is home to the Kennedy Space Center. Located in the central part of Florida’s east coast, the region is home to Cape Canaveral Air Force Base, Patrick Air Force Base, and government contractors such as Harris Corporation. Like much of Florida, this area is growing fast; Port Canaveral is now a leading cruise-ship port.

The Palm Bay–Melbourne–Titusville MSA is expected to see moderate growth in the economic indicators. Personal income growth is expected to average 4.0 percent each year. Per capita income levels should average 34. Average annual wage growth is expected to be 2.9 percent, the highest of the studied MSAs. Average annual wage levels should be at 50.8. Population growth is expected to be an average of 1.1 percent, and the Gross Metro Product level is expected to be 16,745.83 (Mill).

Quick Facts: • Population estimate of 543,376 as of April 1, 2010 (U.S. Census Bureau) • A civilian labor force of 262,750 in May 2011 (Florida Research and Economic Database) • An unemployment rate of 10.8% as of May 2011, not seasonally adjusted. This amounts to 28,398 unemployed people. (Florida Research and Economic Database) Top Area Employers: • Brevard County Schools – 8,535 employees • Harris Corporation – 6,391 employees • United Space Alliance – 6,300 employees • Health First, Inc. – 6,000 employees • 45th Space Wing – 4,174 employees • Space Gateway Support – 3,000 employees • Brevard County – 2,500 employees • Wuesthoff Health System, Inc. – 2,400 employees • Northrop Grumman Corporation – 2,000 employees • The Boeing Co. – 1,962 employees • NASA – 1,577 employees Source: Economic Development of Florida’s Space Coast

Employment growth is forecasted to average 0.7 percent each year, the lowest of the studied MSAs. The metro will be seeing an average unemployment rate of 11 percent.

Trade, Transportation, and Utilities and Education and Health Services sectors are expected to be the fastest growing sectors in the area, averaging 2 percent growth annually. The State and Local government, Information, Professional and Business Services, and Federal Government sectors will experience a decline of -0.9, -0.5, -0.8, and -3.0 percent, respectively.

M e t r o N e w s S umm a r i e s Cocoa pays new city manager $145,000 • Cocoa’s new city manager, Brenda Fettrow, will receive a salary of $145,000. • The city of Palm Bay has six times the population, and the salary of their city manager is $149,000. • The city insists that placing Fettrow as the city manager with her salary will pay off in the long run because her former position as deputy city manager will not be filled. • Most citizens and council members believe this is a good idea and that she is well qualified for the job, but one citizen insisted that the city should have looked at other candidates during the Cocoa City Council meeting.

P a l m B a y – M e l bou r n e – Ti t us v i l l e Cocoa struggles with new plan to pay for new playground equipment gear • The Cocoa City Council reached a stalemate in voting on how to pay for new playground equipment. • The proposition is to use unused federal Community Development Block Grant money to pay for the new playground equipment at the Carl E. Anderson Park. • Two council members agreed to allocate $25,000 for the new park equipment, while three voted against it. Another vote was taken to see how the council members felt on allocating $12,000 instead of $25,000. Again, two council members voted yes, and three voted no. • The council members that disagreed said that the federal funds should be reserved for other projects including housing and flood-control. Source: Florida Today, November 23, 2011 NASA launches $2.5 billion rover to red planet • NASA launched its extremely large rover to Mars in order to investigate the possibility of microbial life existing on the planet. • The rover named Curiosity will take approximately eight and a half months to complete its journey to Mars. • The spacecraft was supposed to be launched in 2009, but had too many problems so the process was delayed. There is a specific alignment between Earth and Mars that is necessary in order to launch the spacecraft, and this alignment only occurs once every two years. • The delay in launching Curiosity lost NASA quite a bit of money, and pushed the final cost to $2.5 billion. The launch was successful though, and it is said to be a great feat in science. Source: MSNBC, November 26, 2011 70

Florida Tech unveils new $350K aviation simulators • The Florida Institute of Technology bought two flight simulators for $350,000 each. • The simulators are identical to the Melbourne airport and the surrounding areas. The simulators will allow students to feel the exact same way as it is to fly a real plane around the Melbourne area. The controls are also identical to the cockpit of a Piper Seminole aircraft. • Florida Tech President, Anthony Catanese, said that they are determined to make the school a leading flight training program. • Florida Tech bought the two flight simulators with funds from the Emil Buehler Perpetual Trust, a trust fund established in 1984. Source: Florida Today, December 2, 2011 After slowing, more foreclosures filings on way • About 18 percent of mortgages in Brevard County are either delinquent or in foreclosure. Foreclosure filings have decreased since 2009 in Brevard County, but the rate still is high because of unemployment, illness, or unwillingness to pay. • There were 454 new foreclosure filings in September, the highest it has been in a year. Many homeowners cannot afford their mortgage, but many are also not paying because they owe more on them than they are even worth. • Previously occupied house sales have been on the rise, sixteen percent higher than this time last year. This shows that even though foreclosure filings jumped in September, the housing market is still recovering. Source: Florida Today, November 6, 2011

M e t r o N e w s S umm a r i e s UWF taking proposals for business grants • In October, the University of West Florida Office of Economic Development and Engagement began accepting grant proposals for business development and research in eight Northwest Florida counties. • The school’s economic-development office was appointed by a bill signed by Gov. Scott to administer $30 million over three years. • The purpose of the funding is to aid in the recovery and growth of the economies most affected by the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill.

ECUA board OK’s 7% rate jump • The Emerald Coast Utilities Authority approved a 7% increase in water and sewer rates, the second of three planned rate increases approved by the board in September 2010 that would total 23% over three years.

Big banks’ losses are credit unions’ gains • Thousands of residents of Northwest Florida have switched from large, national banks to credit unions and small, local banks in recent months.

• The rate increases were held off for years, and are going to be spent repairing deteriorating pipelines and infrastructure that have caused several major sewage blowouts in the last year.

• In the six months, assets at Gulf Winds Federal Credit Union have increased from $371 million to $389 million, and assets at Pen Air Federal Credit Union have increased from $1.03 billion to $1.07 billion.

• A yearlong study in 2010 by the Malcolm Pirnie Inc. estimated that $15 million be spent per year repairing infrastructure; the increased rates will allow for $5-7 million dollars to be spent.

• Gulf Winds has added 500 new checking accounts in recent months compared to an expected 100 to 200, and Pen Air has experienced a 300% increase in new accounts compared to the same quarter last year.

Possible North Escambia Gulf Power nuclear plant faces fight

Gulf Winds Federal Credit Union divvies up $1 million bonus to 46,000 members

• Gulf Power Company is currently buying land in North Escambia County to acquire 4,000 acres that could potentially become the site for a new nuclear power plant. • If plans move forward, the company would plan on asking the state’s Public Service Commission for an increase in the base utility rate to recoup the costs of the estimated $27.7 million project over time.

• The Credit Union’s board of directors approved a bonus dividend to members with share accounts, averaging $21 per member. • The intent is that the bonus will have a positive effect by boosting spending on the local economy. Source: Pensacola News-Journal, December 1, 2011

• The company is delaying purchasing the license and permits for the nuclear plant due to changes in power demand, but is purchasing the land anyway because it is the only acceptable site in Northwest Florida if it decides to continue development. Source: NorthEscambia.com, November 11, 2011

City Supports restoring Amtrak service • Six years ago Hurricane Katrina destroyed the tracks of the Amtrak train service and Tallahassee has not done anything to restore them.

New apartment complex offers housing for homeless veterans • The city of Tallahassee and various community organizations will open fifty units for homeless veterans in an apartment complex.

• The city commissioners have decided to try and bring back the train service to Tallahassee. The commissioners approved a resolution to support the return of the Amtrak train service.

• The renovating of the apartment complex was funded by the Neighborhood Stabilization Program which requires that the housing be affordable for at least fifteen years.

• Bart Bibler, a Tallahassee resident, made a presentation outlining the benefits of the train service. He said that with the rising costs of gas and airlines, the Amtrak train service would benefit many residents of Tallahassee.

• The project was approximately $2.43 million and consists of fifty apartments with one bedroom and one bathroom each. The apartment complex is owned by the Big Bend Homeless Coalition and will also be run under them.

Source: Tallahassee Democrat, November 23, 2011 Utility deposit refunds considered for commercial customers • Tallahassee city commission is debating on returning around $5.6 million to 3,600 commercial utility customers. The city commission hopes this move will keep the Tallahassee economy stable and possibly growing. • The proposal entails local businesses receiving a utility deposit refund if they have been a customer for at least three years. They also plan to implement a new deposit pay over a span of six months instead of all at once in order to help start up businesses and companies. • The refund amount all depends on the size of the business. Small businesses will receive around $250, while the biggest commercial customers can earn tens of thousands of dollars with this plan. • The city refunds residential customers already, but would like to extend this service to businesses in order to stimulate the desperate economy.

Source: Tallahassee Democrat, October 21, 2011 County officials get pay raises • The most senior officials in Leon County received pay raises in the 2012 budget. This is due to the downsizing of the government. • Officials insist that these pay raises for senior officials are because of the elimination of around seventy positions over the past four years. With the elimination of jobs, the employees still working have begun to take on more responsibilities and deserve a higher salary. • County Administrator Vince Long passed on his pay raise earlier this month that he was expected to receive under his contract. He decided to decline this pay raise because of the economic situation. Source: Tallahassee Democrat, November 25, 2011

E x p l a n a t io n a n d I n t e r p r e t a t io n This technique compares the local economy to a reference economy; in this case, the local economy is the chosen MSA, and the reference economy is the state of Florida. An Industry Location Quotient (LQ) is calculated to determine if the local economy has a greater share of each industry’s employment than the reference economy. The LQ helps to identify specializations that exist in the local economy. There are only three possible outcomes: 1. An LQ greater than one 2. An LQ equal to one and 3. An LQ less than one. An LQ that is greater than one means that the share of local employment in that particular industry is greater than the reference economy employment share in that same industry. This implies that some of the goods or services produced by that industry are exported for consumption elsewhere. An LQ of one means that local demand is met by the local industry. No goods/services are imported or exported from the local area in that industry. The share of local employment in that industry is equal to the share for that industry in the reference economy. An LQ less than one implies that the industry is not meeting local demand for that good or service, and in order to meet demand, that area must import that good or service. This also means that the share of local employment in that industry is less than the share of employment in that industry for the reference economy.

C a l cu l a t io n An industry location quotient is a calculated ratio of two ratios. LQ = ((Local employment in industry A in year T / Total local employment in year T) / (Reference economy employment in industry A in year T) / (Total reference employment in year T)) For example: Orlando MSA employment for Information is 27,400 Total Orlando MSA nonagricultural employment is 1,104,100 Florida employment for Information is 169,800 Total Florida nonagricultural employment is 8,247,000 LQ = ((27,400 / 1,104,100) / (169,800 / 8,247,000)) = 1.2039 Source: Florida Regional Economic Database, Current Employment Statistics, December 2006
