Indianapolis Business Journal;3/10/2008, Vol. 29 Issue 1, p13
The article analyzes the economic status of Indiana compared with the national economic condition. According to the author, the state's economy has not been in sync with the nation's. The author states that the differences between the financial and economic statistics posted by Indiana and the rest of the U.S. may mean that the state is so different from the country that cyclical national movements do not correspond tightly with the state's economic variations.
