Changes in the national and international economies have forced Maine and other states to reexamine their approaches to economic development. No longer are the traditional approaches useful in the context of a global economy.

In this article, Steven Ballard, Stephanie Seguino and Charles Colgan put forth their thoughts and conclusions on the strategies and opportunities upon which Maine's economic development efforts should focus.
