Economic problems in rural and urban settings are discussed in this book.

Urban and regional dimensions of manpower policy by Niles M Hansen( Book )

4 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author examined the interrelationships among lagging, intermediate, and congested regions and suggested policies which should be used for each region in view of the relevant opportunity costs for location of public and private investment. Individual chapters on the South, Appalachian Region, Regional Commissions, Indians, Mexican Americans, and labor mobility are presented. The author contends that there is a need to provide an alternative to residents of poor urban areas and to reduce immigration into metropolitan areas. He suggested that an urban growth-center strategy based on intermediate-sized cities be adopted, which would link problems of lagging areas to the opportunities in intermediate-sized rapidly growing cities with tight labor markets. At present, development funds have been spread out to provide aid to a relatively large number of towns and small cities, and legislation has prohibited the development of urban growth-centers. A selected bibliography and design of mobility demonstration projects in various state employment services are appended. (Bc)

Cooperative dispersed urban area manpower planning for nonmetropolitan populations by Niles M Hansen( Book )

2 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As Federal economic development and manpower policies have seldom been coordinated, this study presents a critical examination of the effects of these policies on nonmetropolitan areas and suggests ways in which policy might be better integrated in the framework of substate planning and development districts. Examining the problems of rural areas, the first 2 chapters describe the nature of the American urban system and its relationship to nonmetropolitan areas. Analyzing the theoretical and empirical aspects of growth center strategy, Chapter 3 discusses efforts to bring jobs to nonmetropolitan areas via regional development policies. Since problems of creating grater access to economic opportunity are closely bound up with the spatial organization of labor markets, the rationales behind various delineations of functional economic areas are analyzed in Chapter 4. Chapter 5 assesses the roles of substate regional planning and the a-95 review process in coordinating Federal, State, and local policies and programs in nonmetropolitan areas. Chapter 6 discusses the implications of the Comprehensive Employment Training Act of 1973 (ceta). Analyzing the differences in commuting patterns and welfare indicators, Chapters 7 and 8 examine transportation problems. Recent innovations in rural transportation, particularly in South Carolina, are examined in Chapter 8. Chapter 9 presents a summary and alternative approaches. (Jc)
