Our federal policies and investment come up severely lacking in the end and as Tassey writes for the paper’s abstract, that lack of an institutionalized federal TBED policy “is placing too great a burden on individual state programs.”
As one person familiar with the monograph succinctly stated: “This is the only comprehensive analysis I know of that describes and assesses the full range of TBED policy tools and their organization into regional ecosystems. Both state and other country policy strategies are described and assessed. It also includes some graphical analyses of impacts on state GDP of TBED investments.” I whole-heartedly concur and suggest it be required reading for policymakers, analysists and legislators across the country.
Expect articles in upcoming Digest issues exploring and responding to different aspects of this important contribution to national and state TBED policy.
