Pacific Northwest Regional Economic Confrence
May 23, 2017 @ 8:00 am - May 25, 2017 @ 5:00 pm
The idea of PNREC came to Charles Tiebout, the noted and highly respected Professor of Urban and Regional Economics at the University of Washington, in 1966. He had observed that economic organizations in other parts of the U.S. — the New England Council, for example, and the Southern Economic Association — were undertaking studies that turned the spotlight on their regional economies. These suggested additional reports, possible policy responses, and in any case governmental grants, both to research the problems further and to propose remedies. Professor Tiebout thought that the Pacific Northwest should also initiate an organization, forum or publication that examined its economy, discovered problem areas and suggested remedial action.
