Platte Institute

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.
