Prosperity Index

In the December 4 ExecCom meeting, there was a brief discussion about how business, industry and government assess the growth and economic health of the Sacramento region. In a partial answer to this question, I would offer the 2009 Prosperity Index published by the Center for Economic Research. The PDF version of the report linked above is quite interesting, and I think give us a good grounding in how these assessments are made and presented. Take a look!

    Certainly a good starting point for the CT initiative.

    It would be fascinating to have another similar index comparing the U.S. with top 10 global competitors / countries.

    And have those scales side by side as constant reminders of our need to innovate in education.
