On the Friday edition of The Chad Hasty Show, James Arnold, President of Lubbock's American Bank of Commerce joined Hasty in the KFYO studio to talk about the economy of Lubbock and the South Plains.

During the interview, Hasty asked about the downward trend in new home construction permits, and what it might indicate. Arnold replied, "It looks to me, a very solid and healthy housing market in Lubbock, and that is indicative of a healthy economy."

Arnold talked about housing construction and other factors that influence the economy, then shared information about the many services that ABC Bank provides.
