Regional Economics, with Special Reference to the United Kingdom



Regional economics is a field of study which has meant different things to different people. To some it has meant primarily the study of the economy and the economic problems of a particular region-generally one that is part of a wider area within which free trade prevails, and within which movements of labour and capital are not subject to control. To others it has meant the wider study of the relative economic performances and the economic interactions of a number of such regions. Studies of both these kinds have been undertaken in many countries, with the United States very decidedly in the lead so far as the volume and the variety of the work are concerned, and to survey the whole literature of the subject impartially would be a large task, the fruits of which could hardly be usefully compressed into article length. The aim of the present survey, therefore, is to consider primarily the work relating to regional economic problems and their analysis in the United Kingdom, with such references to studies of other countries as will serve to set British problems in perspective and to suggest approaches that might in future be applied to investigation of them.
