The 3rd World Forum of Local Economic Development (LED), organized by the Municipality and the Metropolitan City of Turin, the global network of United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG) and its Working Group on LED, through the Andalusian Fund of Municipalities for International Solidarity (FAMSI), the Organization of Regions United (ORU FOGAR), the Brazilian Service of Support for Micro and Small Enterprises (SEBRAE), the International Labour Organization (ILO) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), was celebrated on 13th-16th October 2015 in Turin (Italy). With more than 2,000 participants from 130 countries, the Forum offered the opportunity to compare the perspectives of national, regional and local governments, associations, entrepreneurs, academics, researchers and members of civil society on how to achieve a more inclusive, equitable and environmentally sustainable development. The Forum is part of a long-standing process that has been consolidating a global alliance for enhancing the policy debate and a shared vision on Local Economic Development (LED), being aware that this represents a valid approach to implement and achieve the new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), adopted on September 27 by the United Nations General Assembly.

Local economic development and rural wealth creation, whereby agribusinesses play a vital role, have become mainstreamed over the past years. The main focus of these approaches is on global and niche markets, large corporations and sustainable international trade. For most smallholder producers and rural poor, however, local economies driven by the dynamics of rural fresh produce markets are far more important. The course is a life platform for learning: The five proposed, generic interventions will all be illustrated by real live cases that are still in progress. Better still, the very case owners themselves will be presenting their cases! The cases are: − Linking women groups to a supermarket in Kwa Zulu Natal Province (KZN), Rep. of South Africa (RSA); − Sustainable sourcing by a multinational sugar processing company in KZN, RSA; − Improving the performance of the cassava value chain in Kumasi, Ghana; − Commercial broiler production with locally processed feed in Limpopo Province, RSA; − A school feeding program sourcing its inputs among smallholder producers in KZN, RSA.

Portland's Economic Development Strategy: A Five-Year Plan for Promoting Job Creation and Economic Growth In the midst of a period of extraordinary change, Portland needs a strategy to guide the city's economic growth over the next five years. Under Mayor Sam Adams leadership, the Portland Development Commission has drafted a five-year plan to direct the investment necessary for Portland to compete in a transformed global economy. Portland seeks to build the most sustainable economy in the U.S. and, in the process, create 10,000 new jobs. The city already possesses unique competitive advantages that make it a front runner to be the center of the U.S. green economy: an existing concentration of firms in wind, solar and green development clusters; years of recognized leadership in all facets of sustainable living — green building, transit, land use recycling, and bicycle use; and supportive state and local policy. To build a sustainable economy, Portland must assert leadership in three overlapping areas: sustainable job growth, a sustainable way of life and inclusive prosperity. The interplay of these three elements creates a resilient economy where business activity reinforces our shared values, our way of life contributes to a thriving local economy and all Portland residents share in the benefits of this growth. We hope you enjoy this short video that explains a few of the challenges Portland's top business leaders face and how this new Economic Development Strategy will meet those challenges.

Hayyy, Here i'm going to upload my class lectures for you. For the economist, however, a theory is a systematic explanation of interrelationships among economic variables, and its purpose is to explain causal relationships among these variables. Usually a theory is used not only to understand the world better but also to provide a basis for policy. In any event, theorists cannot consider all the factors influencing economic growth in a single theory. They must determine which variables are crucial and which are irrelevant. However, reality is so complicated that a simple model may omit critical variables in the real world. The first two models with some application to LDCs today – those of the English classical economists, and of their foremost critic, Karl Marx – were developed in the 19th century during the early capitalist development in Western Europe and the United States. The next theories include Walter Rostow’s model – written as an alternative to Marx’s theory of modern history – which sets forth five stages of economic growth for LDCs, based on DC experience; the vicious circle theory, focusing on LDC low saving rates; and the debate on preventing coordination failures, including balanced versus unbalanced growth, which clarifies issues concerning the “big push,” economies of scale, complementarities, and differential productivity. The Lewis–Fei–Ranis model views the accumulation of capital by profits from the industrial capitalist sector hiring an unlimited supply of surplus labor from agriculture as the impetus to economic growth in LDCs. Paul Baran’s coalitions model draws on Marx’s historical dynamics and Lenin’s theory of imperialism to analyze economic backwardness in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. In addition, dependency theory, which borrows from Baran’s approach, argues that underdevelopment in third-world countries results from their participation in the international capitalist system. During the 1980s and 1990s, a period of economic conservative governments in much of the West and Japan, a leading approach among development economists was neoclassicism, an economic theory and policy that stressed freedom from the state’s economic restraint. Neoclassical economists dominate the two most powerful international financial agencies in developing countries, the World Bank and International Monetary Fund. Neoclassicism also includes a formal growth theory, which emphasizes the importance of capital formation for economic growth. The fact that the neoclassical growth theory assumed perfect competition and had no explanation for the level of technology within the model motivated other economists to propose an endogenous growth theory in which technical progress, the chief source of growth, was explained within the model.

Promoting Sustainable Local and Community Economic Development documents the current transformation in community revitalization from market-based incentives to mixed strategies of public sector learning, partnerships, and community capacity. Knowledge about the field and what works is growing, but not always publicized and readily accessible. This reference surveys the breadth of innovative place and people development practices, presenting lessons and examples at a general and textured level, putting information about innovative ways to change, influence, and improve the economic development process within easy reach. Roland Anglin brings his unique vantage point to the topic; his experience as a practitioner and applied academic allowed him to see how community economic development practices grow over time in size, scale, and impact. He highlights the difference between what is now termed community economic development (CED) and traditional local economic development practice, specifically the priority placed on community involvement in economic development partnerships between the private sector and government. The book includes case studies that demonstrate what has and has not worked in revitalization efforts, as well as how active public and private sector partnerships have been the most effective in revitalization efforts. A Resource Guide is included at the end of the book for readers who may want a more expansive understanding of community economic development.

PDC seeks to answer this question as it embarks on a broad-based and comprehensive Neighborhood Economic Development (NED) planning process. PDC is now engaging with residents, businesses, urban renewal area committees, and other city bureaus to create a NED Strategy that will guide PDC's work in targeted neighborhoods. This plan will review existing NED tools and examine how PDC can help expand local economic opportunities, create local wealth, assist small businesses, and promote 20-minute neighborhoods. The NED Strategy and Action Plan will focus primarily on PDC's neighborhood urban renewal areas including Interstate Corridor, Oregon Convention Center, Lents Town Center, and Gateway Regional Center—and will also establish strategies for city-wide NED activities.

Too many people are facing rising poverty, inequality and financial insecurity while the powerful few get wealthier. Although rivers of wealth flow through local places, traditional economic development, focused on investment, diverts it, with profits and dividends often being extracted by investors. Local wealth building is an alternative; it is a collaborative approach that builds locally controlled economies which put communities first.
