Which innovation policies work best? What are the best ways to rebuild communities? Does U.S. manufacturing still matter? Find out in Forefront, from the Cleveland Fed.
Innovation -- the ability to produce knowledge and use it commercially -- is a key determinant of economic growth. And public policy can help raise innovation levels. But which policies work best?
In the most recent issue of Forefront, economic experts weigh in on the innovation policies they are enthusiastic about -- such as investment in basic research and improving education -- and those that need more cost-benefit analysis, such as business incubators and financial subsidies.
Forefront, a publication from the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland that features new ideas on economic policy, also takes a look at:
--How to rebuild communities using lessons from the Cleveland Fed's 2012 Policy Summit
--Whether manufacturing still matters in the U.S.
--New, more holistic approaches to economic development
--Cutting-edge efforts to improve America's education system, and
--The early economic impact of Ohio's casinos
