The Fall 2010 issue of the Indiana Business Review has been recently released and is now available for download. A quarterly publication of the Indiana Business Research Center at IU’s Kelley School of Business, the IBR provides analysis and insight on key economic and demongraphic issues.
Particular articles of interest in the latest issue include:
Indiana in the Global Economy: Current Export and FDI Activity – Even though the economic recovery is still fragile, recent growth in Hoosier exports and increases in announced foreign direct investment provide encouraging signals. In fact, Indiana is only one of 14 states whose value of exports in the first six months of 2010 surpassed pre-recession levels.
Education’s Value: It’s Not That Simple – Educational attainment is a major contributor to higher earnings, but the value of a college degree varies widely. The benefits are greatest for people who choose the right industry and occupation. Not enough Hoosier students are studying the fields that lead to the highest wages – which are also the occupations that our key industries depend on most.
