First published in 1970, Regional Economic Development: The Federal Role examines the economic viability of depressed areas and regions. This book questions whether there is adequate justification, on national economic grounds, for Federal involvement with distressed area revitalisation and looks at the main guidelines for intervention in relation to typology of distressed areas. This title is an ideal resource for students interested in politics, macroeconomics, and federal policies concerning the revitalisation of distressed areas and economies.
