The Evolution of European Union Regional Policy - Social, Political and Economic Arguments
AbstractTo implement a regional policy in the EU arguments are based on social, political and economic. These arguments can be summarized as follows: ? inefficient spatial distribution of income: there is an inverse connection between growth and inequality in income distribution. However, people can improve income distribution leads to a less efficient allocation of resources affecting the level of welfare. For this reason, the argument of equity in income distribution is more a social than an economic one; ? adapt more easily to changes in economic structures or major macroeconomic shocks: issues related to EU enlargement Thus, a candidate may face more serious problems after it joins the EU, such as unemployment. As a result, Member States may grant aid to overcome these problems by joining the new state; ? work factor to optimize the allocation and mitigation of unemployment: in areas where economic activity is underdeveloped, unemployment is high. Regional policy can contribute to economic development and employment reintegration underused factor in terms of ensuring a high mobility of its activation and lower operating costs benefits obtained from this reintegration.
