Opinion: China, S. Korea, India on our heels
If every politician, business leader and educator visited China, South Korea and India, we wouldn't have to write an economic development plan for our state. It would write itself.
Time and money are running out. Those countries are growing at break-neck speeds and are readying themselves to replace the United States as the global economic powers of this century.
The future economy will not be about low-skilled manufacturing jobs but about intellect. Everyone, from factory workers to business executives, will need to be smarter and more capable. Education needs to become our mantra, with a goal of our region becoming the "brain trust" for the United States.
