New Jersey is a melting pot of socio-economic, ethnic and racial history that has helped to shape the United States. These and other factors have helped to produce a state where, today, top leaders throughout the world look to New Jersey,and its innovative ways of tackling problems,as a blue print for their own challenges. Energy, the environment, politics and regulations all come together to help create an atmosphere that has fostered both good and bad throughout the State’s history.
