We hear the word economy a lot these days. The economy in Colorado has hundreds of building blocks, which indicates how well Colorado residents are doing financially.

The economy is all about how goods and services are made and consumed. Imagine it like a big game where everyone gets what they need.

The game is not always fair, but the game at least needs an opportunity where everybody can win.

Many other states nationwide also deal with inflation, high insurance rates, and housing shortages, while dealing with a limited budget. Is the economy as bad as social media makes it out to be?
