The original Wisconsin Economic Summits served their purpose by fading away. That's not to say the four summits that took place between 2000 and 2003 were unsuccessful. In fact, the first two summits identified economic trends and strategies that continue to shape the state. The final two summits felt more like an academic exercise, however, and too few business leaders were on hand to carry the torch forward. As a result, the process ended on more of a whisper than a bang.
