Economic Growth and Development in Rural America: Testing Sustainable Development and Market Perspectives

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Get this Document | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Over the last ten years a new line of research in the sociology of economic development has emerged, which emphasizes civic engagement as an economic development tool at both the county and place level. Building from a sustainable development paradigm, this civil society perspective is offered as an alternative to traditional market competition based sociological models of economic development. In this paper I will juxtapose measures from sustainable development and traditional market competition models of economic development. I will test whether or not civil society measures lead to economic growth, and whether or not civil society measures affect economic development once the models control for economic growth and other market competition measures. The analysis will use non-MSA counties as the unit of analysis. The data are from Census, REIS, and other county-level sources. I will test the effects of county-level measures of civil society in 1990 and 2000 on measures of economic development (poverty rate, income inequality, median family income) while controlling for measures of economic growth in the county during the previous decade (earnings and employment growth). The findings will have substantive implications for the sustainable development and civil society literature.
