Must the ex-industrial regions fail?

Buy Article:

$26.27 plus tax (Refund Policy)

Abstract:

This article focuses on the problems of worsening regional inequalities and the problems of ex-industrial regions, mainly in the UK but with some reference to the broader West European experience. It reviews the evidence of growing income and output inequalities between central regions and this new internal periphery and discusses the ensuing political tensions and conflict within different nation states around regional redistribution. It finally argues that the problems of the ex-industrial regions require a new kind of defensive political mobilisation around a new economic policy imaginary.
