Hawaii's economy is not "robust," as we stated in "All-Around Health" on page 20 of our July/August issue. The Aloha State has been in an economic slump since 1990. This year, however, economists expect Hawaii's gross product to grow at or near 2 percent, the largest one-year increase in the state since 1990.
