On Magnets and Magnates
Published on 01/05/1997
Harvard School of Business Professor Rosabeth Moss Kanter writes that communities need both magnets and glue to thrive in the global economy. Magnets attract new people and companies to renew and broaden the local pool of skills. The glue refers to the physical and social infrastructure that holds communities together. This commentary argues that the glue itself is becoming an important magnet for business. The bottom line is that social programs – an essential part of the glue – help make Canada a good place to do business.
