Abstract

Abstract: This paper presents an analysis of the Esperance Local Enterprise Initiatives Committee, which is at the heart of an archetypal emerging pattern of local economic development distinct both from top‐down statist models and from market alternatives. The model is composed of a mixture of state resources (notably finance, information and legitimacy), elements associated with entrepreneurialism, grass‐roots orientation, bottom‐up implementation, the pursuit of profit, and a network system which interlocks the ELEIC with different government departments and agencies.
