Cost factors, management attitudes and the location of private investment

If it is desired to promote the growth of new cities in non metropolitan areas an understanding is required of the factors determining a favourable environment for the growth of private investment and employment in non metropolitan locations. Such factors are numerous and complex. Two important determinants of a favourable investment climate are cost factors and management attitudes. The paper reviews the manner in which cost differentials and management attitudes influence the choice of investment location as between metropolitan and non metropolitan areas. An assessment is provided of the ways in which a selective approach to the development of non metropolitan centres might be expected to improve the climate for private investment in non metropolitan areas by influencing favourably the costs of and management attitudes towards such investment.
