Economic Growth in Cities: Issues for Central Government

Henry Overman

SERC Policy Papers from Centre for Economic Performance, LSE

Abstract: This note is concerned with the role of cities and urban policy in growth. Decentralisation from central to local government may help city leaders raise economic performance. It also generates new policy choices for central government - especially in policy areas where local leaders are unwilling or unable to take actions that benefit growth. Policy decisions in this area will also impact on geographical concentrations of firms that are located outside cities.
