A new report explores how Indianapolis can create more equity in economic growth.
Analysis from the IU Public Policy Institute’s Center for Research on Inclusion and Social Policy, CRISP, shows inclusive economic growth in Indianapolis is hampered by disparity.
Program Analyst Chris Holcomb said just like health or life expectancy, economic improvement is influenced by a person’s start, social situation and barriers.
“How are people able to benefit from the economic prosperity that is happening and to what extent are people able to meet their basic needs and participate in the economy,” Holcomb said.
The report provides a model of strategies to support economic growth for all. Focus areas include existing assets, pathways to success, equitable communities and access to basic needs.
