What Generates Jobs for Alaskans

ISER studies all aspects of the Alaska economy and at times economies of similar regions. It also creates and maintains extensive economic databases. Subjects of ISER's economic analyses include:

  • The unique structure of Alaska's economy, reflecting its size and remote location
  • Proposed or existing economic policies
  • Industrial sectors that drive the economy
  • Contributions of specific economic activities
  • Likely effects of projects and activities
  • Assessments of benefits versus costs
  • Projections of future economic activity
Lead researcher: Scott Goldsmith, professor emeritus of economics, at osgoldsmith@uaa.alaska.edu
