McKinsey and Company – the world’s leading consulting firm – recently published Re-seeding the Garden State’s Economic Growth: A Vision for New Jersey.
This comprehensive analysis recognizes New Jersey’s significant assets – such as an enviable location, an educated population and strong industries – but also acknowledges systemic hindrances that have inhibited the state’s dynamism. Beyond simply identifying areas for improvement, the report outlines a strategy with which New Jersey can more closely approach its potential.
As the authors write, “We in New Jersey do have an outstanding opportunity to reignite our growth. If New Jersey makes the right choices now, it can create a future-oriented, high-growth economy.”
Joining New Start New Jersey for this discussion is Steve Van Kuiken, Senior Partner at McKinsey and Company in New Jersey.
