The North Carolina public policy debate over industrial recruitment incentives, and the logic of industrial recruitment as an economic development strategy, is entering its 27th year in 2009.
Thus far, the advocates of using industrial recruitment incentives are dominating the debate and winning the political battles.
The one small victory for advocates of innovation economic development and a more technological entrepreneurial strategy occurred in the mid-1980's with the organization and creation of a new non-profit policy advocacy group, called The Council For Entrepreneurial Development (CED).
This 1982 document contains the policy outlines for creating the CED, and was written as a contribution from the North Carolina Department of Labor to a state government initiative called The Year 2000.
