Overview

Here is the most up-to-date assessment of the strategies, tools, and requirements for stimulating economic growth and metropolitan development. In twelve chapters, the most eminent scholars in the field provide a no-nonsense review of what works - and what doesn't - in generating economic development. What are the potential and the reality of producer services, suburban business centers, enterprise zones, technology-based ventures, and industrial incubators? How can economic development policy improve the incubator effect? Is there a nationwide venture capital network? What are the locational requirements of firms in high-growth industries? And what are the consequences of failed growth? This book, developed as part of an ongoing research program on economic development issues by NCI Research in Evanston, Illinois, is must reading for policymakers, planners, analysts, and students confronting the complex challenges of metropolitan growth and economic development.
