Abstract

Rural areas facing declining populations and limited economic growth have attempted a variety of strategies to counter these trends. Traditional strategies include developing value- added agriculture and resource-based industries, recruiting new industrial firms, and tourism/retirement-based strategies. More recently, analysts and policymakers have reconsidered a regional system approach to developing rural places (Rusk 1995; Galston and Baehler 1995; Henry and Barkley 1997). The relatively stronger economic performance of urban centers suggests that nearby places may be able to benefit from outsourcing or networking with urban-based firms as well as allowing an expanded labor base to commute to jobs in urban places.
