Our latest magazine edition of Talk Business & Politics is on the streets and in mailboxes across the state. You can access the online version at this link.

The 100-page magazine features an in-depth look at how the Clinton Library came to be located at its current site despite lobbying from North Little Rock and other parts of the state. Through our new partnership with Democrat-Gazette political columnist John Brummett, he visits with the movers and shakers who persuaded Bill Clinton to pick the brown fields in east Little Rock, which has served as an anchor for a decade of development in downtown. He also explores what may be coming next related to the library and downtown development.

In addition to this great story, you’ll find features on how the state’s labor force is transitioning, what will be on your ballot this November 4th, profiles with businessman Tom Schueck, startup creative agency Few, a look at Hot Springs, and Rex Nelson’s essay on El Dorado.

You’ll also find a guest commentary from Gen. Wesley Clark on his new book, “Don’t Wait For The Next War.” Jeff Amerine offers his thoughts on what Arkansas’ entrepreneurial ecosystem lacks, Janet Harris says state government needs to better manage its Big Data, and you’ll find arguments for and against an alcohol expansion amendment on this November’s ballot.

Other features and stories in the latest magazine edition of Talk Business & Politics include looks at Wal-Mart, regional tourism, agricultural policy changes, the promise of biomass, customer loyalty and workforce development efforts.

Plus with our beefed up coverage of regional news, we begin to offer more local content to our statewide readers.
