In the Spirit of Miyazawa: Multipliers and the Metropolis

  • Sam Cole
Part of the Advances in Spatial Science book series (ADVSPATIAL)


This chapter begins with a brief description summary of the present condition of the American inner-city neighborhoods, highlighting those aspects that will be addressed in this contribution. The long-standing problems of the American inner-cities are well documented in the literature — see, for example, Goldsmith and Blakely (1991). The variety of strategies for reviving these locales range from allowing them to degenerate into brown fields which can then be redeveloped from scratch, to invoking targeted “territorial” strategies that use carefully selected leading sectors to force an economy-wide multiplier process. This chapter will explore some macro-economic aspects of the territorial approach — especially the size and origin of multiplier processes in inner city neighborhoods, and the role that these might play in a neighborhood’s revival.
