Financing economic development

29th July 2011.

This Bulletin takes a look at some of the challenges and potential solutions which places have used to deliver new sources of finance and investment, given the current ‘cold economic climate’ and deep cuts affecting public spending.  It does not provide an exhaustive list of sources of finance, but highlights some practical examples and models applied in the UK and internationally; and puts forward CLES’ thinking on some of the opportunities and challenges from their implementation.
