Abstract

Regions, this extract suggests, cannot bring about regional inequality without significant national level action. The key, it is claimed, is a ‘national commitment to decentre the economy’. As well as re-examining some current regional policy – such as whether knowledge transfer needs to happen locally or how foreign investment might be better harnessed – this manifesto argues that national policy needs to be made far more sensitive to the regional agenda.
