Strategic Discussions for Nebraska solicited articles for this publication from Nebraska colleges, universities and businesses. The six articles, authored by seven experts, represent diverse perspectives on Nebraska's economy.
Articles were written by two professors from Chadron State College, two professors from Nebraska Wesleyan University, a professor from the University of Nebraska-Omaha, a businessman from Lincoln and a businessman from Omaha. Perspectives range from science to immigration, from transportation to demographics. The rural and urban outlooks are represented, as is the hope for future understanding between Omaha, Lincoln and greater Nebraska.
