Milken Institute | Research | Regional Economics

Economic growth in the 21st century is fueled by knowledge-driven, high-tech industries. Our Regional Economics analysts examine the dynamics of economic growth and the implications for regional business, labor and public policy.

By analyzing the components that make a region prosperous, we help state and local business and government leaders develop and implement strategies for sustained growth.

Those components include:

  • research and innovation
  • technology
  • demographics
  • entrepreneurial capacity
  • international trade
  • education
  • labor-force skills
  • quality-of-life issues

We also study the demographic contexts that shape a region's growth, including its potential to attract young knowledge workers, to retain affluent baby boomers and to incorporate traditionally underserved minority and immigrant populations into growing sectors.

The Milken Institute has done a very good job of establishing itself as a place that does first-class research...It's information and data that I don't see anywhere else"

-- David Rubenstein
Co-Founder, The
Carlyle Group
The Milken Institute produces research of very high quality, research around issues that are topical, relevant and insightful. Most importantly, the research is objective. It's fair. It's nonpartisan....The Milken Institute's ideas are so powerful because they're based on the idea of free markets and the free flow of capital. That human capital, ideas and innovation combined with financial capital can change the lives of every person on this planet."

-- Kenneth Griffin
Founder and CEO, Citadel
