Abstract:

"Metropolitan and regional economic and demographic shifts - now manifested in the stagnation or decline of America's old industrial region - pose consequences more far-reaching than the urban-suburban shifts which have heretofore claimed public attention. This collection of original essays examines why the focus of development is shifting away from older metropolitan regions and begins to mold policy in regard to a number of vexing issues: jobs and earnings, labor force characteristics, housing supplies, public expenditures, land use, tax delinquency and abandonment, and the struggle for racial equality. George Sternlieb and James W. Hugues have focused on three approaches to metropolitan change: examining the economic and demographic trendlines, analyzing the causes underlying the statistics, and considering the policy implications of stagnation or decline in our older cities."--Jacket.
