Topic: The 10 Simple Rules of Economic Development

  • Our understanding of economic development is evolving from perceptions of it being “complicated” to the realization that is is actually “complex” and that complex challenges require a different approach – a set of simple rules that can help us shape and guide the way our economies grow. Scott Hutcheson will provide an overview of these 10 rules and give examples and practical ways they can be applied.
