In recent decades, North Carolina’s economy has experienced a dramatic transformation. A 20th-century economy that once relied on the “Big Three” – tobacco, textiles and furniture – has transitioned to become a 21st-century leader in pharmaceuticals, finance, food processing and high-tech manufacturing.
