Abstract:There are large variations in economic performance across the cities and regions of the UK. There is a broad North-South pattern to these disparities. But there is also substantial variation within those broad areas: some Northern cities (such as Manchester) are doing well and some Southern cities (such as Hastings) are doing relatively badly. Despite many policy initiatives by the current and previous governments, these disparities remain large and persistent. On some measures, they have widened since the global financial crisis.
