chapter  3
Pages 41

In the last chapter we set out a revised approach to examining regional and urban development which argued that we needed to move from the international level down to that of localities. At the international level and with respect to broad economic and employment changes, there is valuable insight within the NIDL framework. It is therefore appropriate to begin our more detailed analysis of Britain, Australia, and New Zealand with the economic and employment changes which have led to the restructuring of the paid workforce over recent decades. This allows the discussion in Chapters 4 to 8 to develop as an extension and critique of the limitations we have identified within the NIDL framework.
