With new and unprecedented change in Washington and a new governor on the immediate horizon, New Jersey is at a pivot point. How competitive are we? The free market American Legislative Exchange Council ranks New Jersey above only Vermont and New York in tax rates, regulatory burdens and labor policies. The state’s stubbornly high poverty rate - officially at 11 percent, is considerably higher in practical terms.  And the N.J. Business and Industry Association warns of a brain drain.  

But New Jersey’s competitiveness is measured by more than tax and welfare policies.  It is not only about the self-defeating choice between cutting taxes for the affluent at the expense of supporting programs for the working poor.  It’s also about investing in human capital and maximizing human resources.  It’s about nurturing an environment that fosters creativity and spirit at work, working for a common purpose, and ensuring that everyone who gives their best effort has a fair opportunity to succeed.
