Midcoast Senior College presents its FREE “Winter Wisdom” series sponsored by The Highlands. Each week presents a new topic and speaker.
A new economic model is emerging in Maine. Previously built on a foundation of fisheries, wood products, and tourism, new initiatives are gradually but inexorably reshaping Maine’s economy. This presentation will highlight the significant developments that are the Maine economy of our future. The new Maine economic model includes biotechnology, aquaculture, renewable energy, revival of agriculture and food processing, brewing and distilling. John Dorrer has served in government as Acting Commissioner, Chief Economist and Research Director of the Maine Department of Labor, the National Center on Education and the Economy, and the Training and Development Corporation. He has also been an Adjunct Faculty member in the Departments of Economics and Public Administration at the University of Maine.
