My column today is on using our size as an advantage. There are two schools of thought on this. One, small jurisdictions can’t really compete with large ones at any level so unless you strike oil, just accept your destiny. The other view is that small jurisdictions can move faster and do innovative things that would be hard to do in large jurisdictions.
The problem is that it’s hard for small places to be innovative and move faster. It’s easier to be a follower than a leader.
