Some cities and regions have untapped resources which should lift their growth and enhance their attractiveness. Detroit and Greece however are examples of places where the process of decline itself has to be managed, perhaps for a long time, before there will be growth. Regeneration in other places which have suffered economic and structural shocks highlight the kinds of things that most cities and regions can do to generate new sources of growth. Case studies and theory are congruent, but still leave politicians with decisions to take about more extreme situations of decline when recovery seems hopeless.
