A Look Back at the Year in Arkansas Business

This week’s Arkansas Business is an annual treat for me, both as part of the newspaper’s team and as a reader. It’s our yearly look back at the last 12 months of Arkansas business news, including our countdown of the year’s top 10 stories.

We’ve also got a look at 2012′s best and worst and a roundup of the top 10 most-read Arkansas Business stories of the year, written by me. It’s a fun trip down memory lane.

Also: Our media reporter Kate Knable authors the latest entry in our popular Exec Q&A series. This week, Kate talks to Eliza Gaines, assistant publisher of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette (and daughter of Publisher Walter Hussman Jr.), about the future of newspapers and her thoughts on print.

And finally, there’s the best quotations of 2012, including some fun article art put together by the invaluable Tre Baker. John L. Smith, Gus Malzahn, Mike Beebe, Warren Stephens — the gang’s all here. What a year it was, eh?
