COMMENTARY

This website lacks information concerning environmental issues such as natural resources, nonrenewable resources, signifigant wildlife, etc. It should really focus on that as well, otherwise the state is portrayed as unconcerned with its environment.

I had a question as to where I can find economic data on Arkansas- I am writing my MA thesis on microfinance in the state and would like some data, in hopes of seeing any decrease in welfare numbers where there are established microcredit programs. Could you point me in the right direction?
