UNR biz dean gets blunt about Nevada’s future

UNR's Greg Mosier

UNR College of Business dean Greg Mosier didn’t pull any punches on the Feb. 10, 2010 edition of  Nevada Newsmakers, saying that until the state gets smarter about making kids smarter, don’t expect a massive influx of business from California or anywhere else. Some of the points highlighted during the show segment included statements concerning low college graduation rates (statewide), tax issues, and problems with incentives for businesses to migrate to the Reno area. For anyone thinking about starting a business in Nevada – specifically the hot green/environmental market – what are the incentives to start a business here, as opposed to another state? Check out the show, linked above, and make your comments here. Is Mosier correct?
