Economic Perspectives, Vol. 11, 3rd, No. 5, September 1987
Technology and manufacturing in the Seventh District
State and local policymakers in the Midwest have eased up in their pursuit of the socalled "high-tech" industries, such as telecommunications, semiconductors, computing equipment, aerospace, and instruments. In part, this change of emphasis reflects the fact that high-tech industry growth has leveled off following the spurt of the late 1970s and early 1980s. In addition, because most such industries have remained highly concentrated in their region of origin, it has become clear that high-tech industries are not equally suited to all regions.
