Prof. David J. Hess will discuss conventional models of regional economic development that are focused on high technology and the export sector. He will discuss why the models are dominant and what some of the shortcomings are for them. He will then make the argument that a complementary approach has emerged that is based more on the small business sector, local purchasing multiplier effects, sustainability, and social fairness.
