Rural Community Economic Development
Is there a secret to economic success?
What is it that leads to economic success in one community while another community struggles? This question is especially relevant for rural and small town communities that face unique issues and problems. For decades, many rural communities have faced low birth rates, an aging population, low rates of immigration, and declining political power.
There are, though, reasons to be optimistic. In this book, author Wayne Caldwell presents a number of case studies and key lessons that have relevance for communities across the country. These lessons can be adopted and applied by local politicians, municipal staff, and the general public in working to enhance their community and neighbourhood.
For some communities, despite challenges, optimism abounds! This book provides hands-on strategies that can help change your community from one that flounders to one that embraces the future.
