U.S.–Norway Relationship: Strengthening it Yields Dividends for National Defense - National Review
In Executive Order 13806, issued July 2017, President Trump ordered a comprehensive analysis of the assessment and strengthening of the U.S. manufacturing and defense industrial base. The sobering result from the analysis is that the U.S. is struggling: increasingly dependent on foreign suppliers, losing its domestic manufacturing capabilities, and suffering from a decline in science, technology, engineering and mathematics skills among its citizens.

When Is a Public/Private Partnership the Right Choice? - Urban Land Magazine
Between 2016 and 2025, state and local governments are projected to spend an estimated $1.88 trillion on building and rebuilding public infrastructure. But the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) estimates that in addition to this significant amount of infrastructure spending, a $1.4 trillion gap in needed infrastructure will remain. The ASCE estimates that the aggregate economic impact of the failure to fund this gap would add up to a loss of nearly $4 trillion in gross domestic product (GDP) by 2025. Many pundits have hailed access to private capital through public/private partnerships (PPPs) as the Holy Grail with the power to unlock private sector infrastructure delivery efficiencies, which will provide the impetus for state and local governments to fill the gap.

VCs await regulatory clarity on Opportunity Zones, the latest tactic to draw capital to the Heartland - VentureBeat
It’s an oft-cited statistic that 75 percent of venture capital in the U.S. goes to just three states: New York, California, and Massachusetts — and it has for years. If it’s going to take years to close that gap, why not offer an incentive for investors to put their money in other places?

That’s the thesis behind Opportunity Zones, a tax incentive program laid out by Congress in last year’s Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

Opinion: Contrary to popular wisdom, automation is not a job killer in U.S. manufacturing - The Washington Post
I’ve explained why I don’t think the tariffs will help, but I also reject the pervasive argument that automation is just too powerful a job-killing force such that there’s no point in trying to help our factory sector. In fact, according to an important new paper by economist Susan N. Houseman, the argument that “labor-displacing technology,” i.e., robots/AI/etc., has killed factory employment is not supported by the data.

As Congress cobbled together the biggest tax overhaul since 1986, they nearly wiped out the essential sources of funding for large-scale community development projects—namely, three federal tax credit programs that attract private investment for neighborhood revitalization. Developers, financiers, and municipalities pushed back and managed to keep most of what they wanted intact. But now they are dealing with what some of them describe as the new tax law’s unintended consequences.

Seattle Scales Back Tax in Face of Amazon’s Revolt, but Tensions Linger - The New York Times
After intense lobbying by local businesses and a bold threat by Amazon to curtail development in its hometown, the Seattle City Council on Monday approved a smaller and more limited tax on big companies than originally envisioned.

The new tax — dubbed the “Amazon Tax” by locals — will fund affordable housing and homeless services in a city whose economic boom, driven in no small part by Amazon, has priced many residents out of the area and forced some onto the streets.

PDF: Small Business Development Impact Investing White Paper - CDFA
One of the largest challenges faced by small businesses has always been and continues to be access to capital in order to operate, grow and create jobs. While the nation is recovering from the recession, the availability of capital for small businesses has generally not recovered. This is due to the sluggishness of the economic recovery and the decline in the number and activity of community banks (a major source of small business expansion capital). The FDIC estimates that 53% of small businesses get their loans from community banks, yet the number of such banks declined by 28% between 2000 and 2014.

States equip employers to drive apprenticeship - Brookings
It is certainly good news that more policymakers are on board with expanding apprenticeship, but since the whole point of apprenticeship is to provide paid, work-based learning experiences, more employers need to get on board as well. After all, they’re the ones with the jobs.

Automation and American Leadership by Robert Skidelsky - Project Syndicate
In an era of rapid technological change, it is widely assumed that disruptions to labor markets are inevitable – and positive – indicators of a country's international competitiveness. But should policymakers really use the economy to advance national power at the expense of the many people and regions left behind?
