Brisbane, Australia
Curitiba, Brazil
Bogota, Colombia

Three of the best, Google it...

OPINION: Rethinking State Economic Policies

Ken Notes: I have been saying much of this for 12 years now. I hope there is real positive change on the horizon but I have not seen any legislative ideas come to fruition and change must be bipartisan and systemic. Wouldn`t have been cool to work with 10 "Foxconn`s" across the State instead of just one. Some would fail some would thrive and Wisconsin would grow.
