This week is the February edition of Incentives & Instincts, a recurring series in which Justin speaks with economist and friend Bryce Ward about some of the broader issues facing our society. Justin and Bryce talk about changes in Montana’s demographics and culture and the effects on the Montana economy and community cohesion, and to best do that, are joined by executive director of the Missoula Economic Partnership, Grant Kier. Bryce talks about the decline of volunteerism and Grant talks about his work bringing communities together. Both chat about the different ways we can reach out to new faces in Montana and talk to them about what it’s like living here, and Justin asks for advice from Grant and Bryce on where people should start when wanting to get involved in their communities.
