Description - The Civic Culture of Local Economic Development by Professor Laura A. Reese
In this seminal work, the authors argue that there are distict local factors that shape the environment of economic development decision-making. These factors, taken together, constitute a community's local civic culture. Using survey and case study data from U.S and Canadian cities, the authors make the case that different cultures will produce different types of economic development policies, and that local civic culture will effect the whole array of local policies.
