American exceptionalism is on display across America at the state and local level where public and private sector leaders are developing an economic renaissance. Learn how those leaders are achieving success even in the face of a lack of national consensus during a discussion of an interesting new book, Economic Development from the State & Local Perspective, published by Palgrave MacMillan. Author David J. Robinson brings to light the strategies and best practices turning many regions and states into economic powerhouses. Mr. Robinson will review both the basic or “building block� economic development strategies all regions use related to land use, workforce, tax, and infrastructure policy as well as quality of life initiatives helping retain and attract high-wage jobs, and how the leading regions move ahead of others through the Five Drivers of economic development- energy, technology, global, advanced service and advanced manufacturing industries. Mr. Robinson takes a broad view of economic development that goes well beyond tax incentives and focus’ on building sustainable models to achieve success in a global economy.
