Why Wait for Washington? How States Can Create Jobs and Economic Growth

View Slide Presentation

With Congress mired in gridlock, waiting for federal aid to arrive from Washington is a losing proposition. What can state and local officials do to seize the initiative and jumpstart their economies? Balanced-budget requirements don't leave much room to maneuver in many cases - but some locations are trying creative strategies to spark economic growth. What are the best approaches for supporting the entrepreneurs and small businesses that typically generate new jobs, industries and technologies? This panel will explore what states can do to steer their own economic destinies.
