In Chapter 1 we outlined three elements of the crisis which have influenced the emergence of local and regional authority shareholding. These were:
  1. (a)

    the restructuring of British industry, involving an overall reduction of output and productive capital and a conflict between large and small firms;

  2. (b)

    the need to control or influence a haphazard property market arising out of the increase in speculative office construction;

  3. (c)

    pressures to reduce state expenditure in so far as it represented a further unproductive charge on surplus-value.
