To Be Or Not To Be...

Business Friendly



The Nevada County Economic Resource Council's vision statement is very clear:  turn Nevada County into the most economically competitive rural county in the U.S. in five years, and the best way to gauge whether it has is simple:  are more of your friends, family and neighbors employed in permanent, quality jobs?  Are office and manufacturing facilities filled?  Do more local newspaper headlines, community blogs, and radio news broadcasts feature stories associated with business success?


Why is the topic of becoming more economically competitive so important?  Jim Clifton, CEO of Gallup since 1988 and author of the book "The Coming Jobs War" said in a recent interview:  "Gallup has discovered that having a good job is now the great global dream;  it's the number one social value for everyone...a good job is more important than having a family, more compelling than democracy and freedom, religion, peace and so on.  Those are all very important but they are now subordinate to the almighty good job...Stimulating job growth is the new currency of all leaders because if you don't deliver on it you will experience instability, brain drain, sometimes revolution - all of the worst outcomes of failed leadership."  Clifton continues "Creating good jobs is tough, and many leaders are doing things wrong.  They're undercutting entrepreneurs instead of cultivating them."
