Institutional Changes in Local Economic Development Organizations

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

How do counties organize themselves to promote economic development? This question has obvious importance for development priorities, policies, and success, but we know very little about the organizations and institutions for promoting local growth or how and why they have changed over the past two decades. This study will investigate two dimensions of the organizational arrangement for economic development in U.S. counties and test a political market explanation for changes in these institutions. The first organizational dimension is whether the primary economic development actor is the county, a development authority, or a private organization such as a chamber of commerce. The second dimension is whether the county supports a regional economic development partnership organization to promote growth.
Why do local governments choose specific institutional arrangements for the promotion of local economic development? What accounts for institutional change in organization of local economic development programs? How does the configuration of specific interests, intergovernmental networks and political institutions influence institutional change in economic development? To answer these questions posed above, my research will investigate the dynamics of institutional choice for economic development. The Units of analysis are 1060 U.S. metropolitan counties. The dependent variables will be various types of organizational arrangements for economic development. Because I am interested in the change of administrative arrangements, I need to measure institutional arrangements at two points in time. For the analysis, multinomial and binomial logistic analyses will be used to estimate the models.
