A More Competitive Florida: How to Grow the Economy

Florida has long been a leader in economic growth and job creation. But as other states, notably Texas, seek to compete with the Sunshine State, what steps should Florida take to remain competitive? What risks do past and continued government interventions pose to that growth?

Some have argued that special incentives, such as the Florida Enterprise Fund and stadium subsidies, are necessary to remain competitive, but is that the best approach? What policies will encourage a vibrant economy for all and provide for the most level playing field?

Please join The James Madison Institute, the Charles Koch Institute, and a panel of experts to discuss how Florida can remain an economic leader.
