Question: What ideas do you have for Vermont's economy?

Please tell us by Wednesday, January 7 how you might answer Lt. Gov. Scott's questions about how to rejuvenate the Vermont economy, and we'll be sure to pass them along to the legislature this week. Some questions to consider:

1) What does a resilient, healthy economy do? Does it meet human needs, or does it maximize profit at the expense of human and environmental health?

2) What exactly is wrong with Vermont's economy that makes it need "rejuvination?" 

3) What is your vision for a healthy economy fifteen to twenty years from now?

4) What pieces are missing to help the state achieve its economic vision that legislative action can provide? What factors are out of our control?
