The dilemma of regional decline suddenly has come front and center to public consciousness. Increasingly the phenomena of the central city is understood to be most strongly conditioned by the realities of growth and non-growth within specific regions of the country. The Northeast, in its transition from a virtual hegemony of income, wealth, business control function and cultural dominance to the unsteady state of an imperiled region, presents the most dramatic example of this decline.As the White House and Congress begin to grapple with the problems of national urban policy and balanced national growth, the dilemma of the Northeast becomes even more striking. Diseases caught in their infancy are much more easily cured than those that are fully mature. What is the disease that has debilitated this most vital organ of our nation? And, most important, what is to be done about it?To obtain at least a reliable diagnosis, the editors at the Center for Urban Policy Research have sought the opinions of leading figures in the field of urban studies. The topics to which they have chosen to address themselves are such stimulating and diverse ones as:Industrial Obsolescence; Federal Expenditure Patterns;Political Dilemmas; Intellectual Ambience; Tax Incentives; Unionization and Labor Force; Energy Matrix; Capital Supply; Planned Shrinkage;Intra-Governmental Policy; International Perspectives
