Spatially blind trade and fiscal impact policies and their impact on regional economies

  • Hewings, Geoffrey J.D.

Abstract

The evidence for the US suggests that spatially blind policies often generate greater impacts on regional economic growth and development than policies specifically targeted at regions on regional issues generally. In this presentation, attention will be directed to two sets of national policies that have been promulgated without due consideration of their specific spatial (regional) impacts – trade policy and fiscal policy.
