|Description:||Conference on Local Economic Growth: Recession, Resilience and Recovery|
|Location:||Cambridge, McGrath Centre, St Catharines College, United Kingdom|
|Subject:||The conference will focus on how regions and sub regions in the UK, Europe and the USA have differed in their response to, and recovery from, successive major economic recessions, and the extent to which these differences in response and recovery have affected long-run regional and sub-regional growth paths. A particular focus will be on the current crisis and recession, and how the geographies of this compare to those of the downturns of the early-1980s and early-1990s. The conference will also contribute to the development of policies aimed at building local economic resilience. Topics: - The long-run empirics of local economic growth - Understanding the determinants of local economic growth - The resilience of local economies to recession - The local impacts of fiscal austerity - Policies for local economic growth [gemäß den Informationen des Anbieters - according to site editor's information]|
