Economic development initiatives have been a major public policy focus for the State of Texas in the most recent past. To further discussion on economic development topics, the Texas Lyceum is publishing the 2006 Journal in conjunction with its public conference held in San Antonio in November 2006. The goal of both the conference and the Journal is to stimulate the discussion between public and private sector stakeholders on the future economic development activities in the State.
Economic development activities have helped diversify and grow the burgeoning economy of the State of Texas. The multifaceted components that go into creating a successful economic development policy are wide ranging, and share varying degrees of support throughout the State. This issue of the Journal covers topics that cut to the core of economic development – research and development, access to capital, higher education, and commercialization, to name a few.
