Nebraska's Economic Future 2009


Nebraska Economic Future

This project focuses on Nebraska's economic future. It includes a summary of our findings; stories based on individual interviews; summaries of community conversations; and five articles written specifically for this magazine. The articles represent varied geographical perspectives as well as perspectives on various parts of the state's economy.

We selected Beatrice, Columbus, Kearney, North Platte and Ord for community conversations; we also convened a focus group of University of Nebraska-Lincoln students to gain the perspective of Nebraska's future leaders. Additionally, we visited Aurora, Falls City, Omaha and South Sioux City for photos and interviews.

I welcome your comments on this study and your suggestions for future studies. If you would like copies of the magazine, please contact me.
