Welcome to Nebraskanomics, hosted by Jim Vokal, CEO of the Platte Institute. We help Nebraskans remove barriers to opportunity with policy research and legislative advice. The Platte Institute is a think tank promoting policies that make it easier to get a good job, start a business, and help Nebraskans keep more of what they earn. If you want more economic freedom in Nebraska, please visit PlatteInstitute.org to make a donation to help fund our research or, you can subscribe to our newsletter. ❌ It’s time to stop the status quo. Let’s remove economic barriers and make Nebraskans proud.
