Powerpoint on early childhood programs and local economic development

I gave a talk this morning to the Youth Human Capital and Economic Development Network. This network is sponsored by the Human Capital and Economic Opportunity Working Group of the Milton Friedman Institute at the University of Chicago. This overall working group is co-directed by Nobel-prize-winning economist James Heckman, and Rob Dugger of the Hanover Investment Group. This project is being financially supported by the Institute for New Economic Thinking.

The powerpoint from this presentation has now been posted. This powerpoint provides a good summary of some of the key points of my book, Investing in Kids.  I think the powerpoint is self-explanatory even without the accompanying talk.
