The AAII Twin Cities Chapter presents...

Trends That Matter: Why Metropolitan Regions Grow

    Discussed by:

    John S. Adams

Note: Our original January 19 speaker, Fred Zimmerman, has had to cancel due to family issues. Dr. Zimmerman suggested that John Adams, a very well-qualified friend and colleague, take his place. Hopefully, Dr. Zimmerman will speak to us at our May 17 meeting.

Is it prudent to disproportionately invest in local companies, as does the Mairs and Power Growth Fund (MPGFX)? What makes for a successful regional economy? How important is location to a company’s success? How have new economies developed since 1990? What makes an economy vulnerable and susceptible to decline—and how can this situation be reversed? This presentation will address these issues and provide some background on the three ways that regions grow today, as well as current trends.

Attend This Meeting and Learn...
What makes an economy susceptible to decline and how this situation can be reversed
What a region needs to address to maintain its quality of life and economic competitiveness
How to improve a region’s balance sheet
