The Sunday New York Times Magazine included Trex Proffitt Jr.’s idea for a local stock exchange in its 8th annual Year in Ideas issue.

“It looks like I hit a nerve,” said Proffitt, assistant professor of organization studies in the Department of Business, Organizations & Society.

Proffitt’s feasibility study has suggested a seven-county local stock exchange would be a good way for local companies to access capital to grow.
