Oil is at the heart of Alaska’s economy, and the price per barrel a leading indicator of its health. So with the price of oil crashing, what happens now?

Gunnar Knapp with the University of Alaska Anchorage’s Institute for Social and Economic Research and Cliff Groh of the nonpartisan public policy organization Alaska Common Ground will explain Alaska’s fiscal crisis and what we can do about it.  They’ll also take your questions.

Join us for Forum@360: How Tumbling Oil Prices Affect Everything in Alaska at 5 p.m. Monday, Jan. 19 at 360 Egan Drive in Juneau. You can also watch it live here.

Tweet questions for our speakers @360North or post them on the Facebook event.
