Evaluating Impacts of Economic Growth Proposals: An Analytical Framework for Use with Community Decision-Makers. Publication 8.
Bender, Filmore E., Ed.; Cunnings, Lucy M., Ed.
The nine in this publication are based on the assumption that communities must develop a framework for analyzing economic growth if they are to make responsible decisions relative to rate and form of economic growth. Divided into two parts, this document presents: (1) papers relative to general perspectives on economic growth and development, and (2) papers relative to specific case studies on economic growth. Among the perspectives presented on growth and measurement are: (1) an economist's view of opportunities and problems, (2) environmental implications, (3) sociological implications, (4) the fiscal impact of economic development on a community, (5) tools for making economic growth decisions, and (6) information problems relative to assessment. The papers which present case studies deal with: (1) the impact of seasonal home development, (2) the impact of a construction worker community on a rural county, and (3) the impact of residential development alternatives. The workshop program and the names and addresses of program participants are appended. (JC)
