MAKING TRULY COMPETITIVE CITIES - ON THE APPROPRIATE ROLE FOR LOCAL GOVERNMENT

Alan Collins ()

Economic Affairs, 2007, vol. 27, issue 3, 75-80

Abstract: "Much economic and urban research lends increasing support to the view that local government authorities could actually improve their 'competitiveness' by not being required to engage in the 'business' of local economic development and rather by concentrating on their 'core' activities such as maintaining sound, basic infrastructure within their jurisdiction."
