Over recent decades the performance of Delawares economy has steadily deteriorated. Growth in output, income and jobs has slowed, converging on the national average. Slower growth diminishes opportunities for all of Delawares citizens.
The contention of this report is that providing increased opportunities to individuals and firms fuels the creative destruction process that is essential to economic growth and development. The report identifies areas where economic freedom in Delaware may be unnecessarily constrained. Further in-depth examination of these areas of freedom deficiency will be the focus of the Caesar Rodney Institutes Center for Economic Policy and Analysis for the immediate future.
The Caesar Rodney Institute is Delaware's Only General Public Policy Organization Committed to Protecting Individual Liberties and Preserving Fiscally Responsible and Efficient Government for the Common Good.
