Quality of Life, Nontraditional Income, and Economic Growth: New Development Opportunities for the Rural West.
Nelson, Peter B.
Rural Development Perspectives, v14 n2 p32-37 Aug 1999
Areas of the West with natural amenities enjoyed growing populations and income levels in the 1990s, mostly from inmigration of people with self-employment or investment income. These were usually young, well-educated professionals in service industries. Rural communities with policies that enhance quality of life (better schools, environmental protection) may attract these migrants and stimulate economic development. (Author/SV)
