Meds and Eds

Saturday, August 25, 2007

Tim Bartik of the Upjohn Institute passed along this note: "Given your recent postings related to higher education and economic development, you might be interested in a recent paper I wrote with George Erickcek that tries to quantify some of these relationships based on a review of the literature."

The paper is "Higher Education, the Health Care Industry, and Metropolitan Regional Economic Development", and is available here.

I recommend it to EDPros in metro areas as a way to gain insights into the opportunities of health care and education.

If you would like to see a practical translation of this strategy, download this report from Arizona State University. Download the report. You can also review a Brookings Instituion report here.
