The Political Economy of Manufacturing Growth and Decline across the American States, 1970-1985.
Grant, Don Sherman, II; Wallace, Michael
Social Forces, v73 n1 p33-63 Sep 1994
A pooled, cross-sectional, time-series analysis of state manufacturing growth rates for 1970-85 indicates that manufacturing growth was influenced by workforce quality, population density, and elements of states' political economies, including state fiscal capacity, organizational capacity of labor, social wage policies, and state political/electoral context. State-sponsored economic development policies had minimal effects. (Author/SV)
