If one of the three legs doesnÃ¢??t carry its weight, the other two canÃ¢??t compensate enough to make companies thrive, goes the thinking.
Businesses must be aggressive and entrepreneurial. Government must protect society from businesses excesses while still encouraging enterprise. And universities need to push research into the private sector where the ideas can be turned into high-value products or services.
What are you seeing in this state or in the community where you live? Are all three legs carrying their weight? Are any wobbly?
