McCall, T, Regional Development: The 'Tasmanian Problem', Minority Government: The Liberal Green Experience in Tasmania, School of Government. University of Tasmania, Kate Crowley (ed), Australia, pp. 161-180. ISBN 9780646572871 (2012) [Other Book Chapter]
How do small, sub-national, peripheral economies such as Tasmania respond to the pressures of globalisation within a regional development framework? Regional development policies are necessarily multi-layered and contested. Regional development policy includes: policy responses to intrastate and interstate socio-economic disparities; the development of policies to enhance comparative advantage across a range of prioritised industry sectors; and the incorporation of the constituent elements of the 'shared vision' into a marketing strategy that promotes the export and growth potential of all industry sectors. Do minority government regimes assist or destabilise this policy response?
This chapter will focus specifically on the regional development 'problems' encountered by the Rundle government (1996-98) and its policy response within a minority government framework.
