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.
