Caught in the Middle

From Site Selector Magazine

A native son with a global perspective delivers a blunt yet optimistic assessment of the Midwest's future as an economic engine.

According to the article, the book is quoted:

"Peoria is doing all the right things."

"There is the feeling there of being
in a place with a future."

That is the kind of quote from a book that we like.

We agree with the quote.

So, please buy the book.

Next Generation Consulting (NGC): "Young knowledge workers said that where they lived was more important than where they worked. Furthermore, Census figures indicate that from 1990 to 2000, only a handful of cities had a net in-migration of young knowledge workers, while 90 percent of America’s cities suffered a net loss. In other words, cities that can attract and retain these highly mobile young knowledge workers will reap economic gains.



Congratulations and Thanks to Everyone who helped make this happen.
