Webcast: Mississippi Chapter – Economic Development for Everyone: Creating Jobs, Growing Businesses, and Building Resilience in Low-Income Communities – Speaker: Mark Miller, Ph.D.

How do we create employment, grow businesses, and build greater economic resilience in our low-income communities? How do we create economic development for everyone, everywhere – including rural towns, inner-city neighborhoods, aging suburbs, and regions such as Appalachia, American Indian reservations, the Mexican border, and the Mississippi Delta – and not just in elite communities? Miller's forthcoming book Economic Development for Everyone (Routledge, June 2017) collects, organizes, and reviews much of the current research available on creating economic development in low-income communities: both the challenges these communities face in the current environment, as well as diverse ideas and opportunities for sustainable economic development.
