The book analyses the conception of economic development in modern regions, which has gone through a fundamental change since the early 1980s. Regions are today increasingly looked upon as independent market places that are connected via interregional and international trade and not as administrative units embodied in a national state. This chapter focuses on the computable general equilibrium approach to the ex post evaluation of regional development agency policies.
