Explaining the New Spatial Inequality: Regulatory Policy and Local Economic Capacity

View this Publication

Paper argues that while increasing spatial inequality can be explained with reference to the internationalization of the U.S. economy and firm competitiveness, changing market conditions are not the only factors re-shaping the space economy. Paper examines constraints on economic development policy within the new economic development. Constraints include lack of enforcement of anti-trust law and reorientation of financial institutions away from rural areas.
