Regional Disparity in the European Community 1950 – 1990

  • Hans Kuiper
Part of the Advanced Studies in Theoretical and Applied Econometrics book series (ASTA, volume 35)


Economic development in a country (or group of countries) can be analyzed by looking at the development of separate regions located in the country. The principle of an asymmetric development always can be observed; sectors are flourishing in some regions and lacking behind in others. In some regions activities seem to concentrate and other regions are specialized in just one particular sector.
