The Greening of Montana
The World of E-Commerce
Business to Business
From Bench to Business

While critics sometimes refer to Montana as one of the disconnected dozen states that are slow to join the information technology wave, many are starting to see the Internet and e-commerce as a valuable tool to help improve the ever-vulnerable economy.
E-commerce has created a borderless economy where Montanans can do business with anyone Internet connected. It could, in fact, make up for the problems caused by Montanas geographic isolation. And it couldnt have come at a better time, with Montanas continuing dismal economic performance, say researchers at UMs Bureau of Business and Economic Research. Montana currently ranks last in the nation in average wages and 47th in per capita personal income.
How can e-commerce benefit the state? How can Montanans better take advantage of the opportunities offered by information technology?
BBER researchers will address these issues during their annual Montana Economic Outlook Seminars statewide in early 2001.
In partnership with First Interstate Bank, BBER offers the seminars in Helena Jan. 23, Great Falls Jan. 24. Missoula Jan. 26, Billings Jan. 30, Bozeman Jan. 31, Butte Feb. 1, Kalispell Feb. 6, Sidney March 6 and Miles City March 7.
Registration is $70, which includes lunch and a one-year subscription to the Montana Business Quarterly.
