Houston, Texas and other regions are booming while others struggle. Why are Texas and other regions succeeding when others fail? Public and private sector organizations across the United States are struggling with how to revive the American economy, to not only employ people and create wealth but to keep America on top of the global economy. Most of the actual action geared toward creating jobs and wealth occurs at the state and local level. Economic Development from the State Local Perspective is a public policy roadmap, mixing case law, public policy, and economic strategy, and examining the wide range of issues facing efforts to improve the American economy, to illustrate how economic growth is driven through strong public-private partnerships, and how successful growth strategies from the state and local level operate to grow jobs.
