Recording: Primed for Amazon: Value & Cost of HQ2 for Cities, Mar 10, 2018

Amazon's announcement that they are searching for a second headquarters set off a frenzy of interest across the country. Hope of securing the second home of one of the world's biggest companies has created national interest and local conversations about community values, the real costs of economic development, and what are the critical issues at stake when bringing a tech giant to your town. Hear mayors discuss what their cities want and need in pursuit of economic success.
