How to grow the Kansas economy

In this 14 minute video from April, Art Hall, who is Director of Center for Applied Economics at Kansas University, talks about how to grow the Kansas economy.

An important takeaway is that our targeted economic development strategies can’t handle the volume needed to create a lot of jobs in Kansas. We need policies that apply uniformly, so that we can generate as many business start-ups as possible. Of these start-ups, some will grow rapidly, but we don’t know the identities of these companies in advance.

For more about these ideas, see Hall’s paper Embracing Dynamism: The Next Phase in Kansas Economic Development Policy.
