Los Alamos is a small town in a small county on an isolated plateau in a sparsely populated region of a sparsely populated state that most folks have either never heard of or think is a foreign country.
Los Alamos is a highly specialized single-industry economy with a dominant employer which was responsible for the founding of a town in a location that otherwise would be a lousy place to put a town. Historically, the only towns with those parameters are mining boomtowns.
And yet there are possibilites.
In the ’80s, County government made a serious effort to bring businesses to Los Alamos; an effort that, for a variety of reasons, did not really work all that well. 1) most businesses with established clientele are unlikely to pull up stakes, relocate and start all over from scratch; 2) its all about shovels; the person who makes $200,000 a year does not buy 10 times the number of shovels as the person making $20,000 a year.
