Two essential but very different types of investments are considered in this issue of the Indiana Business Review.

The first is housing, an investment made by individuals or families. The second is foreign investment in on-the-ground businesses in Indiana. Both are important to our communities. Each contributes significantly to the Indiana economy through property taxes ($6.1 billion in 2010) and by providing jobs (more than 130,000). The authors of both articles provide us with analysis and insights into current trends in housing and foreign investment—enjoy!
