The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Strategies for Economic Development.

Stinson, Thomas F. and Margaret Dewar.

A spending squeeze is occurring at all levels of government causing every governmental activity to be reexamined. Two professors, one in applied economics and the other in urban and regional planning, in 1995 presented their analysis of Minnesota's largest programs for economic development assistance: tax increment financing, local revolving loan funds, and the state Economic Recovery Find. They studied these programs over a number of years in parts of the state outside the Twin Cities metropolitan area. Their conclusion, that the programs would operate better if they used a regional approach to economic development, has meaning for the metropolitan area as well.
