The webinar kicked off with Mark Muro, Senior Fellow with Brookings' Metropolitan Policy Program, presenting the new report "Advanced Industries: Defining America's Competitiveness," which assessed key national and regional trends in 50 industries around the nation.
Building upon this outline, Anupam Singh with 113 Industries explored a study conducted by the Catalyst Connection that measured the impact of megatrends like cloud computing, the "internet of things," and the emergence of advanced materials.
During the webinar, Wichita, Alabama, Boston and Detroit received a shout-out from Brookings for being hubs of the new Advanced Industry sector. According to Brookings, this sector punches well above its weight in opportunities, wages and economic impact.
