GCSC Seminar – Natalie Gochnour “What’s missing in Utah’s economic prosperity?”
September 19, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm MDT
“What’s missing in Utah’s economic prosperity?” – Natalie Gochnour, Director, Gardner Policy Institute, Associate Dean, David Eccles School of Business, U of Utah
The Utah economy receives accolades for rapid job growth, low unemployment, industrial diversity, and upward mobility. Economic growth, however, brings challenges as not all areas of the state are prospering and new residents enlarge the state¹s development footprint, demand greater quantities of treated water, contribute to air quality problems, and create other sustainability challenges . The presenter will describe the current status of the Utah economy, provide insights about what¹s missing in our current economic development efforts, and consider public policy interventions that can help us meet the economic needs of future generations.
