The nature of our economy is changing and that means our economic development toolkit needs an update. A shift is needed to move from old methods that may have worked for a different economy to a new innovative, creative and flexible method that will work for today’s economy – a method that is based on creating jobs locally, one based on a “Do-It-Yourself (DIY) economy.”
During the first part of the webinar, we explain changing landscape of the labor market that necessitates new approaches. The second part of the webinar will outline potential policy directions for stimulating a new economy based on locally-owned small businesses that will provide our communities with economic diversity, local control, increased economic development capacity and quality job creation.
