Strategic Discussions for Nebraska interviewed selected local and state leaders, representing government, academia and business. Each was asked questions about economic drivers, community and state susceptibility, the state's role in the global economy and vision for the future.

The people we interviewed were selected based on their roles in Nebraska. You will find points of view based on agriculture; economic development; rural and urban perspectives; the University of Nebraska; state and local government; and business. You will read about efforts to grow the state's work force and thus, the state's economy. You'll learn about Nebraska's tax structure; what it takes to help a small community to thrive; how education is integral to the state's future; exports; efforts to recruit and retain the state's population; and the teamwork necessary to bring Nebraska together.

These stories represent Nebraska's challenges and opportunities.
