Regional economics: survey of reading lists in universities in Canada and the United States.

1. Objective:

Regional economics plays an important role in the economics curriculum. The positive feedback from readers on earlier works like micro- and macroeconomics prompted the author to conduct the present survey. The intent of the survey is to provide information on books and journal articles assigned to students, the frequency or the number of universities using each title; the average number of books and journal articles assigned; the prerequisites to students before allowing them to register in a specific course; and the weights assigned to grading and new areas of emphasis, if any, introduced since 1981 by faculty members in the teaching of regional economics courses. The provision of such information might improve the quality of teaching by assisting faculty members to update their reading lists; might help students to choose frequently used titles for the completion of term projects and problem sets; might enable publishers to make decisions about reprinting of journal articles and monographs; and might help librarians to develop a balanced collection in the light of budget cuts in real dollars and high prices in printed materials far exceeding inflation.

2. Survey:

To fulfill the above outlined objectives, a sample of universities representing the South, North, East and West of the United States and Canada was selected. The data on North American universities where the program of economics at the undergraduate and graduate levels was considered to be the strongest has been retrieved from reference works like directories and guides at resource centers: 1. The World of Learning, by Europa Publications, 41st ed., 1991.

2. American Universities and Colleges, edited by American Council on Education, 13th ed., 1987.

3. Guide to Graduate Study in Economics, Agricultural Economics and Related Fields: United States of America and Canada, 5th ed., edited by W.F. Owen, 1979. 4. Peterson's Annual Guide to Graduate Study: Book 2, Humanities and Social Sciences, 24th ed., 1990.

A questionnaire along with a formal letter were directed to a sample of 97 (ninety seven) North American universities. After eight weeks had elapsed since the initial inquiry, reminders were sent to heads of economics departments requesting their cooperation in the transmittal of information.

Fifty eight (58) universities responded by providing information which shed light on books and journal articles assigned to students, objectives and scope of the courses, pre-requisites and grading. The information about recent developments in regional economics since 1981 and their incorporation in teaching was obtained by meeting senior faculty members at major universities who had spent several years in teaching and had contributed to research in regional economic issues. Also, the information was further augmented by a literature search in economic indexes and abstracts, such as journal of economic literature, index of economic articles and key to economic science. Typographical errors and incomplete bibliographic details were corrected by comparing catalogues and journals located in university libraries.

3. Tabulation:

A total of 140 (one hundred and forty) books and 213 (two hundred and thirteen) journal articles were selected from course reading lists. Books which were assigned as texts (45) were separated and listed alphabetically by last name of the author under the heading titled "Core Texts." Additional references and/or supplementary monographs were merged with journal articles and arranged alphabetically by last name of the author or by corporate body when there is no author. Space constraints prompted to condense the survey results without distorting its quality.(*) Monographs used by at least two or more universities and journal articles by three or more universities were listed under appropriate subject headings listed below:

1. Core Texts 2. Location Theories and Analysis 3. Migration and Interregional Markets 4. Models and Quantitative Analysis 5. Regional Differences 6. Regional Growth and Policies

There are titles which were used only by universities in Canada or in the United States and some were used by universities in both the countries. To report this information and also the frequency of use of each title by universities, the following symbols were used in (parenthesis): e.g.,

au2 = two American universities using the title.

cu4 = four Canadian universities using the title.

If a title was not followed by a symbol with an arabic numeral in parenthesis, it means that the title was used by one university which can be interpreted as a marginal title for consultation by students, for acquisitions by librarians and for reprinting by publishers. Each monograph indexed contained the name of the author, title, place, publisher, year of publication and the number of universities using it. In the case of journal articles, name of the author, name of the article, journal name, volume number, month, year of publication and the number of universities using it.

The analysis suggested the average number of books assigned in the course by each university was 2 and it was 4 in the case of journal articles. Unlike courses in macroeconomics, microeconomics and industrial organization, emphasis in reading materials was placed on monographs by assigning chapters as opposed to journal articles.

There was some uniformity in course outlines examined. The literature search in academic libraries, interviews with senior faculty and analysis of reading lists led to the following overview:

Regarding the objectives and course content, it was offered as one semester course at the third-year undergraduate level to students majoring in economics and at the graduate level to those contemplating specialization and writing of a thesis in regional economics. The objectives of the course pertained to expose students to an examination of historical evaluations of cities and regions, especially of their hierarchical structures, their changes and their interaction with other sectors. Further to equip them with skills in applying economic theories and quantitative techniques in order to analyze and to interpret regional problems like unemployment, pollution and poverty; and to enable them to understand and to examine government policies both from the point of view of their abstract and their applied forms, in order to correct and to offer solutions to regional disparities. To fulfill these objectives, the course was organized to include the topics such as: structural problems, location analysis for rural and urban regions, regional business cycles, mobility of factors and interregional trade, integration of spatial and economic analysis with emphasis on theory and policy, statistical analysis relating to model building, input-output analysis and linear programming, role of regional sectors like transportation, natural resources, labor, housing, public policy and planning. Usually by the middle of the course, around the completion of the theoretical analysis like spatial economic theory, emphasis was placed on empirical analysis of regional issues, especially at the state or provincial level where the university is located. Though the course dealing with Canada and U.S.A., the theories discussed and applied to North American issues, were derived from the problems of third world countries in Asia and Africa. Regarding new trends, many Universities in recent years have been in the process of introducing graduate courses. In the last ten years, faculty members have been emphasizing the following areas in their teaching, deviating from the traditional approach toward spatial economic analysis and theories. The areas of emphasis consisted of the following:

1. urban issues like transportation, development of new towns, housing and migration;

2. encouraging student participation in class discussions, especially on local regional issues;

3. dependency and related theories;

4. transition and empirical analysis;

5. macroeconomic issues of growth and econometric modelling of regions;

6. institutional issues like logical reasoning, diagrams and graphs to interpret and analyze problems; and

7. public policy towards regional imbalances.

Regarding grading, there was a close uniformity in arriving at a final grade among most of the universities (90 percent). They emphasized term paper and its presentation to the class as mandatory requirement towards fulfilling course requirements by assigning a little over one-third of the weight (35-40%) to the final grade. The topics of term papers pertained to the use of a statistical test of a hypothesis about a region by describing the methodology of the test and its results, which were abstracted from using the data contained in census publications on land, population, housing and the size of cities. The paper should not exceed 10 typewritten pages, double spaced. Besides, a mid-term test was given by assigning a weight of 20-25 percent and a final examination with a weight of 35-40 percent to arrive at a final grade. Regarding prerequisites, students were required to have taken an introductory micro- and macroeconomics as well as intermediate microeconomics prior to registering in regional economics courses. Besides, a few universities (20 percent) expected a pre-requisite of an introductory econometrics course or statistics from students. Familiarity with basic calculus and algebra was also preferred by some departments (15 percent).
