Regional development and services in Quebec : review of the question / Donna Brown.: Iu3-2/1-1988E-PDF

"In recent years, economists have become widely aware of the growing domination of developed economies by the service sector. Parallel to this has grown the view that service industries may serve as an economic development panacea for less developed regions, given their apparent absence of locational constraints. Two major assumptions underlie this perspective: one, that service industries will locate in less developed areas, and two, that service industries, once established there, will have a motor or propulsive effect, thereby leading a regional economic revival. As a survey of the literature, this paper will examine and attempt to draw conclusions from the existing body of Canadian research concerning the role of the service sector in the economic development of Quebec's outlying regions"--Introduction, page 1.
