TYLER, TX (KLTV) -

The University of Texas at Tyler's College of Business and Technology and Hibbs Institute of Business and Economic Research held its fourth annual economic summit on Thursday.

The guest speaker spoke about the new US economic normal, which he said includes slow economic growth, struggling labor markets, and a government that is on the sidelines, someplace he said the feds have been since mid 2012.

On Thursday, he offered a new perspective and ideas for improving performance, and it starts locally with something he calls bandwidth. 

 "Bandwidth in simple terms is the rate at which information passes through at a specific point in time. Why I use the term bandwidth is because it is something we can control. We don't have to worry about what is happening in Washington D.C.and elsewhere. Bandwidth means we are looking for ways to improve our business and looking for ways to improve our schools that don't necessarily cost any money," said Dr. Ronald A. Johnson, Dean of the Jesse H. Jones School of Business at Texas Southern University.

Some of the ways he suggested increasing your bandwidth is by investing in people, building on your promises and expanding your network.
