Better than Business as Usual 2: The Economy

BAU: A strong diverse economy but not a global center. Economic development strategies within the region that cause communities to compete with one another for a ‘bigger slice of the pie’ (a larger share of a limited business tax base).

Better: A global reputation for innovation, business leadership and adaptability. Economic strategies that ‘make the pie larger’ for long-term economic stability and sustainability.

Presentation: Using our existing economic base to become a global leader in the businesses of the future
Mike Lockerd, Executive Director, North Texas Regional Center for Innovation & Commercialization

Presentation: Collaborative, sustainable economic development in North Texas
Carl Grodach, Assistant Professor, University of Texas at Arlington School of Urban & Public Affairs (Report on research conducted by Carl Grodach, Brian Guenzel, Michael Hemmig, Douglas McDonald, Ryan Miller, Chawana Mwangeka & Robert Pacleb; School of Urban and Public Affairs, University of Texas at Arlington)

Presentation: Basing our future economy on sustainability
Robert Folzenlogen, Director of Planning & Development, Hillwood Development
