Challenges to Economic Development: Dimensions of "Remoteness" in the North
An Alaskan economist explores the concept of "economic remoteness" as it applies to the development of northern regions. The objective is to extend the range of factors assessed in northern economic studies beyond largely physical criteria (e.g., climate and location) to encompass cultural and institutional variables in which "remoteness" also may play a role. The concept is used as a basis for examining contradictions in economic structure, the role of government, and the persistence of poverty in northern regions.
