Find out which states are leading, and which are lagging, in the United States’ transformation to a global, entrepreneurial, digital, and knowledge- and innovation-based New Economy, when ITIF releases its 2008 State New Economy Index. The Index, sponsored by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, ranks states on 29 indicators in five key areas—knowledge jobs, globalization, entrepreneurial dynamism, IT, and innovation—on the extent to which their economies are effectively structured to operate and compete regionally as well as globally. The report also lays out an innovation-based policy agenda designed to help states succeed economically in these turbulent times.

The event will feature presentations from report author Dr. Robert Atkinson, President of the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation, and Dr. Robert Litan, Vice President of Research and Policy at the Kauffman Foundation.
