Competitiveness & Prosperity

Jurisdictional Competitiveness and Prosperity defines the relationship between the competitiveness of a jurisdiction – whether city-region, state or province, or nation – and the degree to which its inhabitants enjoy high and rising prosperity.  Prosperity is a function of the institutions and infrastructures that enable financial, human, knowledge, social and physical assets to be combined so as to produce more valuable outputs than those of competing jurisdictions.

It brings together the varied facets of prosperity from city planning, to urban economics, to tax policy, to cultural policy, to labor economics, to poverty policy into an integrated view of the drivers of broad prosperity for the populace of a jurisdiction, whether city, region, state/province or country.
