dc.description.abstract • Opsomming: Navorsing het getoon dat pogings van plaaslike owerhede om plaaslike ekonomie te ondersteun en werksgeleenthede te verskaf, nie ’n onlangse ontwikkeling in Suid Afrika is nie. Bewyse van Port Elizabeth en drie Oos-Kaapse dorpe toon dat plaaslike regerings aktief betrokke was in aggressiewe plekbemarkingsstrategië, werksverskaffingsprogramme en die beskikbaarstelling van verskillende aansporings vir potensiële firmas. Strategieë wat geïmplementeer was, het verskillende resultate opgelewer en hierdie artikel beklemtoon In paar van die merkwaardige verskille wat ontstaan het.
