October 1: Economic Impact of the Nebraska Agricultural Production Complex, Eric Thompson and Brad Lubben

Agriculture is a pillar of the Nebraska economy. Nebraska’s total net farm income is a little over 5% of the state’s total personal income on average. Those percentages rank Nebraska third highest of the 50 states and the highest percentage for any state with a population over 1 million.

This study is a joint collaborative effort of the UNL Department of Agricultural Economics and the Bureau of Business Research within the UNL Department of Economics and funded internally by the Institute of Agricultural and Natural Resources (IANR) of the University of Nebraska–Lincoln. It draws on substantial expertise in key issues affecting agriculture such as irrigation, natural resources, the agricultural equipment industry, and community economic development.

Drs. Eric Thompson and Brad Lubben will discuss this study in a special webinar session hosted by the UNL Agricultural Economics. Attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions and share their thoughts during the Q&A session. Stay tuned for more information.

October 15: The Economic and Tax Revenue Impact of Inadequate Early Childcare in Nebraska, David Rosenbaum

Access to quality child care plays a key role in Nebraska’s prospects of ongoing economic stability and growth. Unfortunately, insufficient options for stable, reliable child care take a heavy toll on Nebraska’s families, employers and economy— nearly $745 million annually in direct losses. This Webinar explains the sources of those losses.

Dr. David Rosenbaum, John T. and Mable M. Hay Professor of Economics and the chair of the economics department at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln, will host this session. Attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions and share their thoughts during the Q&A session.
