Nevada's hostile business climate

Here's a former DRI researcher who left the state, taking millions of dollars in funding for high-tech research with him, to Texas.

“It turns out, ironically, that the state of Texas has big economic problems as well,” Young said in a phone interview. “But there’s a very fundamentally different level of understanding in terms of what the university does for the economy and for the future of the state [in Texas]. You don’t really hear that a lot in Nevada.”

See the excellent story on "Exodus of University faculty"

As Michael Wixom has said, "we're losing real dollars in real time" by not supporting higher education faculty.
