Completely revised, this new edition presents a well-balanced set of economic development financing tools and techniques focused on our current times of economic austerity. While traditional public sector techniques are evaluated and refocused, this volume emphasizes the role of the private sector and the increasing need for cobbling together different techniques and sources to create a workable financial development package. The chapters address critical assessments of various methods as well as practical advice on how to implement these various techniques. New chapters on entrepreneurship, the changing nature of the community banking system, and the increasing need for partnerships provides critical insights into the ever-evolving practice of economic development finance. Key features: --Provides a comprehensive view of financing methods: public, private, and a combination of both sectors. --Includes an up-to-date evaluation of traditional and new financing techniques, and the limitations and opportunities of each. --Addresses current economic issues, including a chapter on banking reform. --Includes completely revised sections on private and entrepreneurial finance as well as public finance.
