2014 Economic Outlook: Part 1
We are going to talk about the economic outlook for the state of Montana in 2014.
Here to talk about it are a highly respected Montana economist and the founder of a highly successful technology company based in Bozeman.
Dr. Patrick Barkey heads up the University of Montana Bureau of Business and Economic Research, a highly respected agency that has been issuing economic reports for decades.
Greg Gianforte, founder of RightNow Technologies, is the classic entrepreneurial success story. Gianforte started the company in a spare bedroom in 1997 and by the time the company was acquired by Oracle for more than $1.8 billion in 2012, it was Bozeman's largest commercial employer and the only publicly traded technology company in the state.
