What are the Essentials of Economic Development in North Carolina?

Jonathan Morgan is a School of Government faculty member.

Over the past few months, I have been writing a series of blog posts that explore the important question of what works in economic development. Those posts review some of what we know about the effectiveness of various economic development strategies and tools being used around the U.S.

My experience with public officials in North Carolina, is that they are particularly interested in learning more about what works or could work right here at home in the state’s communities and regions. They want to know more about what approaches, strategies, tools, and promising practices are being used in North Carolina with some degree of success?

This will be a significant focus of the discussion among participants in the upcoming Essentials of Economic Development courses being held on May 15, 2012 in Asheville and June 7, 2012 in Pembroke.
