James Chung, president of the New York-based research firm Reach Advisors, shared the data-backed reasons Des Moines is out performing other comparative metros. And he shared new insight into what we need to do so we stay ahead of the curve and accelerate the region's growth. State Curator Leo Landis starts things off with a historical preview on "Big Data from Iowa's Past," which was based on research of World War I. Chung follows at the 17 minute mark.
