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 local economy, and to share his opinion of the economic future of the South Plains.

When asked what he sees over the next few years for Lubbock's economy, Arnold said,

You know I think it's bright. I think it bears itself out in how we sustained the downturn in the '08 and '09 downturn in the Texas economy and the national economy.

Hasty and Arnold also spent some time discussing the effects that oil price declines have had on the Permian Basin and South Plains economies.
