This very timely monograph takes a fresh look at the state of the English regions and the contribution that regional policy makes towards improving economic prosperity and social well-being. The authors offer our politicians and policy makers an alternative regional policy agenda, which draws on past experience and the lessons learned from other countries. This publication builds on the influential work the Smith Institute has undertaken on individual English regions, and follows on from collections of essays we have published on devolution, regeneration, housing and growth, Europe, trade policy and sustainability. The chapters, by leading thinkers in the field, also complement research by the Regional Studies Association and the Centre for Urban & Regional Development Studies (CURDS) on regional economic development and regional inequalities.
