Host: Commonwealth Foundation. For decades, Pennsylvania has ranked near the bottom of the fifty states in economic growth while losing residents to other states. Why do some states thrive, while others lag? A new report from ALEC, "Rich States, Poor States," examines the economic policies and outcomes of the fifty states and outlines which public policies successful states have adopted. At this luncheon, Jonathan Williams, a co-author of the report, will discuss the findings and what they mean for state economic trends.
