Investment Premiums: Expensive but Hardly Effective
AbstractThis paper discusses the effects of the investment premiums arrangement, which is one of the main instruments of regional economic policy in most Western countries. On the basis of theoretical considerations and various Dutch case studies, it is concluded that a basic revision of this policy instrument might lead to a reduction of the costs and an improvement of the effects. The case study presented in this paper applies the LISREL framework which allows the handling of latent and observable variables simultaneously. In this way, effects of policy packages, which are defined as latent variables, can be analyzed. Copyright 1987 by WWZ and Helbing & Lichtenhahn Verlag AG
