With the lending massacre of 2008 and 2009 finally a thing of the past, many Washington State "middle market" companies are looking to the coming years with the hope of economic stability and improvement. Chase, in partnership with the Seattle chapter of the Association for Corporate Growth (ACG Seattle), released the resource for economic clairvoyance in 2010: The State of Washington's Economy. The 19-page document, compiled and updated quarterly by JP Morgan Chase, details Washington's recovering economy using data from the US Department of Labor, the US Department of Commerce, the FHFA and more.

The State of Washington's Economy displays the most valuable indicators of economic status, graphed in comparison to the rest of the US economy. Analyses of each graph forecast which Washington State industries will lead in the coming years, the signs that Washington's economy is finally stabilizing, and specific areas the economy will continue to lag. A breakdown of employment rates and house prices in various Washington cities is also available. "We are excited for the opportunity to provide such a comprehensive and significant resource to Washington State's business people. Especially after the unforeseen economic downturn over the last few years, we are elated to give our colleagues and peers reliable and up-to-date data to prepare for the future," says Franz von Bradsky, Chairman for the Northwest Growth Financing Conference, hosted this year by Chase and ACG Seattle.

Chase chose to publish The State of Washington's Economy on the ACG Seattle website in preparation for the Northwest Growth Financing Conference on July 29, 2010, a conference the two entities are co-hosting in downtown Seattle. Now in its fifth year, the annual conference aims to provide "middle market" businesses the education and tools to continue surviving the region's tumultuous economy. Registration is available on the ACG Seattle website.
