Opportunity Zones Luncheon (TULSA)
“Domestic Emerging Markets” are what some are calling the targets of a plan to help distressed America hidden in last years’ tax bill. Forbes reported, “If everything goes right, a big slice of $6.1 trillion of paper profits on America’s balance sheets could go to revitalizing depressed communities.” The area boundaries have been drawn. Where can you fit into these opportunities and what are the rules? Who will control the capital and how can you attract it? All questions we hope to answer in this latest offering from ULI Oklahoma – please join us.
