    Abstract

    Since the mid-seventies, the general public of some European countries has been listening to a growing chorus of economists and politicians who lament the rising regional imbalances of unemployment. The chorus is especially large in Britain and West Germany where both an approximate north-south divide began to take shape, with the old industrial north and north-west apparently losing ground to the still flourishing south in the common fight against low growth and high unemployment.
