CENTERS for

Economic Development

The key to a growing economy is increased economic development and a decrease in government intrusion into the market place. As the old saying goes, "A rising tide lifts all ships." That theory applies to economic development. If a vibrant economy is available to Virginia, then everyone benefits -- more people are employed and the tax base allows for adequate funding for government programs. Government policies and actions impact on future economic development and this Center looks at specific issues impacting on economic development based up the Mission Statement of the Thomas Jefferson Institute.
