Restoring Prosperity: Repositioning Southern Nevada for the Next Economy

Summary

The outlines of the next American economy are coming into focus, yet the future remains uncertain in America’s metropolises. On April 5, Brookings Mountain West and the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, hosted a forum to discuss ways the region can emerge as a competitive force in the global economy.

Bruce Katz, vice president and director of the Metropolitan Policy Program at Brookings, advanced a bold vision of the next American economy as it might take shape in southern Nevada.

Katz sketched a wide-ranging agenda for helping Las Vegas reclaim prosperity in the new era. Brian Greenspun, Brookings trustee and chairman of the Greenspun Corporation, opened the program and Robert Lang, Brookings Mountain West co-director, moderated a response discussion among local leaders.
