The Rise of the Entrepreneurial State charts the development of state and local government initiatives to influence the market and strengthen economic development policies. This trend marked a decisive break from governments’ traditionally small role in the affairs of private industry that defined the relationship between the public and private sector for the first half of the twentieth century. The turn to state and local government intervention signaled a change in subnational politics that, in many ways, transcended partisan politics, regional distinctions ,and racial alliances.

Eisinger’s meticulous research uncovers state and local governments’ transition from supply-side to demand-side strategies of market creation. He shows that, instead of relying solely on the supply-side strategies of tax breaks and other incentives to encourage business relocation, some governments promoted innovation and the creation of new business approaches.

Editorial Reviews

“As a synthesis of U.S. economic development policies, Eisinger’s highly informative and well-written book stands alone. No one else has succeeded so well at offering such a comprehensive perspective. . . . Eisinger’s book is destined to be essential reading in economic development courses, an invaluable handbook for practitioners, and a seminal interpretive framework to which all subsequent theorists will have to respond.”—Choice
