Abstract:

"Though possessing strength in measures of income, education, and job growth, the Kansas City region faces three stark challenges to its long term competititveness. A failure of the region to work together to address these issues--limited capacity for innovation, unfocused growth, and a legacy of disparities between racial groups--will substantially hinder the region's future. This report outlines the three challenges, describes why they are so important, examines some building blocks for change, and ultimately presents a specific policy agenda for the Kansas City region"--Page 1.
