Abstract

This study examines the effects of eight state economic development policies on measures of state economic health, on unemployment rates and on manufacturing value added. Using an interrupted time-series regression analysis, these policies are seen as having no discernible effect on these indicators. Reasons for the continued adoption of these policies, despite their lack of effect, are then suggested, reasons such as the pressures of business interests on sub-national units in a federal system.
