Description:

A big question for many cities is "What's next?" Can they count on growth in the medical sector or in higher education? Examining the environs around Kansas City, this thoughtful report from the Brookings Institution brings together some research on economic performance. The report was authored by a team of policy experts, including Amy Liu and Chad Shearer, and was released in June 2014. Visitors can read the executive summary on the site or may wish to simply look over the basic findings, which are front and center on this page. Some of the observations indicate the greater Kansas City area is confronting global and political forces that "require renewed attention on the core drivers of economic growth and prosperity."
