Policy Works is a podcast hosted by the Reimagining the Economy team. Policy Works investigates the myriad moving parts (the institutions, actors, and systems) through which economic development policies are implemented.
This podcast serves as a platform to engage in in-depth conversations with frontline agents in economic development, including leaders of economic development agencies, workforce development boards, community development nonprofits, small business development centers, and philanthropies and foundations. Through these conversations, the podcast sheds light on a range of questions about the practice of economic development: how does policy work? What does the process of activating economic development look like? What institutional arrangements, mechanisms for coordination, knowledge sharing, and experimentation enable economic development? What hinders this?
