Do Place-Based Policies Matter?

Do Place-Based Policies Matter? | Tammie Nemecek Favorites | Scoop.it
Place-based policies such as enterprise zones offer economic incentives to firms to create jobs in economically challenged areas. Evidence on the effectiveness of enterprise zones is mixed. There is no clear indication that they successfully create jobs. However, positive effects are evident for other policies, including discretionary subsidies that target specific firms, infrastructure spending that targets specific areas, and investment in higher education and university research.

If No End to Incentives for Jobs, then What? | Tammie Nemecek Favorites | Scoop.it
Nevada’s recent incentive package, valued at $1.25 billion, to bring Tesla’s battery production near Reno has reignited a longstanding debate about the merits of state and local economic development subsidies to attract or retain firms and whether to ban the practice all together.

Eds and meds, unite: Anchor districts are new engines for job creation | Christine McBurney | PopCityMedia.com

Eds and meds, unite: Anchor districts are new engines for job creation | Christine McBurney | PopCityMedia.com | Tammie Nemecek Favorites | Scoop.it

"In two thirds of America’s 100 largest cities, anchor institutions such as universities and hospitals are the largest employers." That statistic comes from the Anchor District Council, a trade and advocacy group comprised of community service corporations, hospitals, universities and institutions and companies in anchor districts.

What is an anchor district? It can be defined as a geographic area with a density of institutions like universities and hospitals that are considered fixed "anchors" in a neighborhood because, well, it’s hard to move a collection of 100-year-old buildings. More importantly, however, these anchors stabilize their communities through activities such as creative placemaking and job creation.

Pittsburgh’s own anchor district community is in Oakland, where it’s been since the early 20th century. Today, i many healthcare institutions, arts and culture organizations and universities cluster and connect with large businesses, small firms, startups, incubators and accelerators in Oakland. It's the hotbed of Pittsburgh’s “eds and meds” where institutions such as UPMC, Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh work closely and collaboratively to conduct research and spur innovation.

A recent story in CityLab, “How Anchor Instititions like Hospitals and Universities Can Help Cities,” refers to these institutions as “economic powerhouses.” Tanvi Misra writes: “Universities represent three percent of the national economic output and employ more than 3 million people. Hospitals employ even more: Five million. One in eight universities and one in 15 hospitals are located in inner cities.”

It is these institutions, often located in anchor districts, that are adding jobs at an impressively fast clip. In part, this is because the healthcare sector, in particular, is rapidly expanding. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics Employment Projections, "Occupations and industries related to health care are projected to add the most new jobs between 2012 and 2022. Total employment is projected to increase 10.8 percent, or 15.6 million, during the decade."
