Economic Development Administration - 0 views

  •  
    The U.S. Economic Development Administration's investment policy is designed to establish a foundation for sustainable job growth and the building of durable regional economies throughout the United States. This foundation builds upon two key economic drivers - innovation and regional collaboration. Innovation is key to global competitiveness, new and better jobs, a resilient economy, and the attainment of national economic goals. Regional collaboration is essential for economic recovery because regions are the centers of competition in the new global economy and those that work together to leverage resources and use their strengths to overcome weaknesses will fare better than those that do not. EDA encourages its partners around the country to develop initiatives that advance new ideas and creative approaches to address rapidly evolving economic conditions.

YourEconomy.org (YE) provides detailed information about the performance of businesses from a national to a local perspective by following individual establishments who have a DUNS number. Of particular significance, YE depicts a dynamic journey of how business communities are evolving through time as opposed to traditional research and data sources that focus on a static moment.
