New book reveals financial strategies for global economic development

“Fundamentals of Economic Development Finance, Second Edition,” identifies innovative tools for economic development and job creation despite the severe global condition

SAN MATEO, Calif. (MMD Newswire) September 6, 2011 – – Business consultant, author and educator, Susan Giles Bischak claims that cities, states and countries need to expand the possibilities as they pursue economic development and job creation in the current economic climate. In “Fundamentals of Economic Development Finance, Second Edition” (ISBN 0615517242), she offers many finance tools that can be used for the development of new businesses and development projects. Giles Bischak believes that with these tools, communities will be able to compete for improved economic standards.

Giles Bischak breaks down the “deal” using mainly the private sector approach for public sector development. She shows how leaders can use an executive-style strategic business plan approach for finance, marketing and development in order to vie for funds in the global marketplace.

“What we know is that the entrepreneurial spirit exists all over the globe. From the small villages in West Africa to the larger towns in Central Europe to the oil rich nations in the Middle East and the very large metropolitan areas in China bustling with technological development and manufacturing, we have seen the demand for local economic development, and it will continue to be strong,” says Giles Bischak.

“In the midst of a sea of global economic turmoil, which has only exacerbated the demand for capital and debt-financing for public and private economic development, Susan Giles Bischak throws out a life preserver in the form of an apolitical, clear, concise and step-by-step guide to successfully plan, fund and implement economic development projects. Dually suited for both the academic arena and public and private developers, her book serves as an understandable and invaluable tool and blueprint for those desperate to plan, fund and install their economic development programs in today’s very difficult economic times. Timely, astute and pragmatic,” says Tom W. Anderson, Vice Chairman & Founder, PENSCO Trust Company.

“Fundamentals of Economic Development Finance, Second Edition” is available for sale online at and other channels.
