New Blog Focuses on Economic, Social Policy
CHAPEL HILL (October 14, 2009) – This morning, South by North Strategies, Ltd. unveiled Policy Points, a new blog focused on economic and social policy issues relevant to North Carolina.
“The recession has raised the importance of economic and social policy, yet the sheer volume of national information coupled with a relative lack of state-specific data makes it hard to get a firm understanding of what is happening in North Carolina,” says John Quinterno, a principal at South by North Strategies, Ltd., a research firm specializing in economic and social policy.
“Policy Points aims to fill that void,” adds Quinterno.”The goal is to provide journalists with a font of story ideas, policymakers with state-specific information, and the interested public with a place where they can learn about the issues of the day.”
Policy Points provides North Carolina journalists and public leaders with an accessible source of economic and social information. During the business week, the blog will offer analyses of state and national socio-economic data, commentary on trends, links to informative media stories, and access to timely policy and research reports.
The blog was created as part of a redesign of the web site of South by North Strategies, Ltd. Besides containing Policy Points, the site also has information about the firm, summaries of past projects, and an archive of past reports and media releases.
The blog may be viewed directly on the web or via RSS feed.
