Is the convergence debate over? Structural changes and labour productivity

Amjad Naveed

Chapter 5 in Geographies of Growth, 2017, pp 96-132 from Edward Elgar Publishing

Abstract: Today we can observe an increasing spatial divide as some large urban regions and many more medium-sized and small regions face growing problems such as decreasing labour demand, increasing unemployment and an ageing population. In view of these trends, this book offers a better understanding of the general characteristics and specific drivers of the geographies of growth. It shows how these may vary in different spatial contexts, how hurdles and barriers to growth in different types of regions can be dealt with, how and to what extent resources in different areas can develop, and how the potential of these resources to stimulate growth can be realized.
