Promoting Local Economic Growth: The Role of Entrepreneurship and Human Capital
Taylor, Michael; Plummer, Paul
Education & Training, v45 n8-9 p558-563 2003
A question that currently confronts economic policy practitioners is how to promote local economic growth in regions, cities and places, in a neo-liberal political climate under conditions of intensifying global competition. This paper argues that we need to understand the workings of our local economies--the processes that shape, mould and drive place-based communities of business owners, manager, workers, bureaucrats and families. Identifies, validates and prioritises the drivers of local economic growth recognised in a range of theories, using econometric modelling and fine-grained empirical data. The intention is only to begin a discussion on what are appropriate policies to foster local growth in the face of globalisation.
