Arizona is headed for the perfect storm. A slower economy, the collapse of the housing market and the loss of the major source of cheap labor. The Brown Flight will cause the Arizona economy to see RED. Arizona will have it's own recession and State Tax Revenues will fall dramatically affecting everyone in the State of Arizona.
