The UW-Stevens Point Center for Business and Economic Insight (CBEI) promotes regional economic and community development through the provision of applied business and economic knowledge to the citizens of Portage, Marathon and Wood counties. The CBEI aims to be an indispensable source of expertise for local business, governmental and community leaders.
University of Chicago professor of economics, Walmart chief economist and UW-Stevens Point Distinguished Alumnus John List ’92 returned to campus March 3-4 to speak about his experiences of scaling great ideas and shared stories from the White House and Chicago Heights schools to Uber and Lift.
This report includes Central Wisconsin Economic Indicators by Scott Wallace, and the Economic Update – Spring 2023 by Chief Analyst Kevin Bahr. In this issue’s special report, Remembering the Future: Every Leader Can Practice Foresight, Lyna Matesi shares her research about how to concretely engage others in your understanding of the best future. The stories you tell can activate those around you to first rehearse and then remember and enact the future you’ve envisioned. This issue’s Insight Spotlight column, A Brief Review of All the Fuss About AI, features Greg Koepel providing a compelling introduction to both the capabilities and challenges associated with artificial intelligence.
