CRP’s economic development concentration publishes working papers

January 21, 2010

Members of CRP's concentration in Economic Development: Communities and Regions have recently published a series of working papers through the eCommons@Cornell repository. The goal of this working paper series is to present faculty and student work in-progress and is directed at both policy and scholarly audiences.

A committee composed of CRP faculty and Ph.D. students organizes the working paper series. Papers submitted for inclusion in the series are reviewed by two members of the committee (or appropriate outside reviewers) for content, quality, and relevance to the concentration.

Recent submissions include: "Losing Out on Industrial Policy: The Chicago Case", "In-Sourcing the Production of America's Energy Technology", "How Local Policies can Support the Development of Green Jobs", "What Local Officials Need to Know About Wind Power in Their Communities", "Grass Biomass: A Biofuel Strategy Right for Upstate New York."
