Book: Coping with Economic Adversity: Regional Economic Resilience and Public Policy.

Coping with Adversity addresses the question of why some metropolitan-area regional economies areresilient in the face of economic shocks and chronic distress while others are not. It is particularly concerned with what public policies make a difference in whether a region is resilient.
