From the Publisher'Targeting regional economic development deals with the strategy that arguably occupies most of the economic development activity of cities and regions. With contributions from eminent academics intimately involved in local economic development practice, this book presents a tool-box of new and innovative methods for regional economic targeting along with the theoretical and conceptual moorings of these applications.' — Professor Daniel Felsenstein, Director, Institute of Urban and Regional Studies, Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel.
"Goetz, Deller, and Harris’s collection, like all good collections, is the work of a community of scholars. But what is unique about it is that the authors are a community of scholars committed to both research and outreach. The result is a collection about targeted regional economic development (TRED) that reflects both current theory about regional economic growth and current theory about community development practice." — Eric Thompson, Department of Economics, University of Nebraska-Lincoln (Journal of Regional Science, 2011)
