This book offers cross-national evidence of the effectiveness of financial and physical incentives for regional development. It challenges the transitional wisdom that competition is harmful for regional development or can be zero-sum. It answers questions such as: What are the effects of tax incentives on the rest of the economy? Do such incentives merely redistribute employment? Do tax and infrastructure incentives have any effect on the unemployment rate of areas adopting them?
