I read this article on the New York Times today from columnist Thomas Friedman. It was an interesting take on the future of jobs and economic development. Local and federal governments should take a hard look at the recommendations and think about how they can be part of the future development of economy.
Faster bandwidth, universities and educated populations are the future of economic centers and generators, according to Friedman. It's an interesting concept and with the way we process and take in information today and the rapid evolution of technology Friedman may really be onto something!
