In chapters 6, we ask whether the most common intentional efforts to bring about recovery through public policy or civic action that we identified in the previous two chapters was likely to have made a difference. We do so by first, setting forth and discussing the logic underlying the policy, i.e., why and under what circumstances the policy might (or might not) be expected to have an effect on regional economic resilience or development. We then summarize the existing research literature that evaluates the specific policies and over what time frames they are likely to occur. Chapter 6 considers approaches related to the provision of public goods and to improve the operation of the region’s economy: human capital, education, and workforce development; infrastructure improvement; amenity improvement and creation; restructuring of economic development organizations; and leadership.

Keywords:   Public goods, human capital, education and workforce development, infrastructure, amenities, economic development organization, leadership
