Making Sense of Economic Modeling Tools: Attracting Foreign Investment and Promoting State Exports
In a fiscal environment with much competition for limited state resources, state leaders need the ability to make data-driven policy decisions more than ever before. Increasingly, state leaders are using economic analysis software and data systems to predict economic impacts. Users have used one of those programs, IMPLAN, to estimate the direct, indirect, induced and total impacts of foreign direct investment to their state’s economy including the number of jobs supported, labor income, total value added and tax revenue. In this eCademy, presented by the State International Development Organizations, speakers from IMPLAN will discuss how economic modeling software can help policymakers better understand the importance of international trade to their state and guide decisions on economic development initiatives, infrastructure and special event investment.
