Political Fantasy? Local nanotechnology project is not redundant

Abstract:
It sounded like an off-the-cuff remark. But it landed like a thud in Syracuse economic development circles.

Ken Adams, who heads the New York State Business Council, made his controversial comment after being nominated by Gov. Andrew Cuomo to take over the Empire State Development Corp. In an interview, he talked about developing 10 regional economic development councils to spur job growth, and warned against the "political fantasy" that each region can pursue the same opportunities. Then he said:

"And that means being very clear that the Capital Region, for example, is the official home of nanoscale science. Period. If someone comes along and says, I want to do nanoscale science in Syracuse,' they should be taken out to the woodshed. You can't do it."
