Doing business in the post-global financial crisis (GFC) is extremely challenging for most. Traditional capital has all but dried up. This has created challenges and opportunities for business decision makers to embrace public-private partnerships in order to determine the best business climate, provide public-backed incentives to close expansion & relocation projects and reduce operating and start-up costs. Running the gauntlet of getting these deals to come to fruition is tricky and full of issues that need to be addressed in order to gain access to capitalization for projects that can create jobs, increase public tax base, and assist in diversifying and rebuilding damaged local economies.
This book is a guide to navigating this tumultuous path and assisting business leaders and economic developers in finding common ground to close new business projects and get America and other local economies around the world back into sustainable economic growth.
