Abstract

In order to determine the degree of similarity among 'local development trajectories' the paper conducts a preliminary comparative analysis of the development trajectories of the major local systems in the Marche Region in the period 1951-2001. It shows that there have been marked differences among the economic performances of these local systems – with regard to both the rates of change and time profiles of the trajectories. It also shows that there are substantial differences among local systems' economic sub-structures. These findings seem to raise severe doubts as to the scientific correctness of assuming Regions as 'units of analysis'. Moreover, they raise doubts about consideration of Regions as 'units of regulation': indeed, the structures of local systems are so different to require specific development strategies. The results obtained for the Marche Region suggest that the comparative analysis of local systems' economic performances should be extended to other Italian Regions as well.
