2010 State New Economy Index To Be Released
For the past couple of years, the Kauffman Foundation’s Bob Litan has teamed up with Rob Atkinson of the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation in releasing the State New Economy Index during Global Entrepreneurship Week. The trend continues this year at the ITIF offices on Thursday.
Many jobs lost in the recession are never coming back and job creation is expected to be sluggish for years. This has created an imperative to develop new jobs, business models and industries. The states are on the front line of this effort and it is more important than ever for them to embrace innovation and the New Economy. ITIF will unveil the latest data on how the states are doing in efforts to be competitive in the global, entrepreneurial, innovation- and knowledge-based New Economy. The report builds on previous reports that go back more than a decade and uses 26 indicators to assess the states' efforts to succeed in the innovation economy. See how the states rank and learn about what has worked and where progress is needed in the 2010 State New Economy Index.
