Pittsburgh: Way Too Many Economic Organizations!

Given the purposes of Project Concentrus, this article is a must read! Harold Miller of Pittsburgh writes about his region: “Indeed, fragmentation and lack of coordination among governments and civic agencies is one of the major impediments to solving our other problems. We have over 1,000 different governmental entities in the region – more units of government per person than any region in the country. We have at least a dozen separate organizations focused on technology businesses, nine tourist promotion agencies, five workforce investment boards, and dozens of other agencies working on infrastructure issues. All too often, instead of working together to compete with other regions, we’ve fought among ourselves over who will get the biggest slice of a stagnant economic pie.”
