This, he asserts, will help to elucidate the relative importance of material and non-material (semiotic) factors in shaping how successfully the imaginary will be retained and reinforced. He concludes by reflecting on the value of a modified CPE approach, arguing that ‘it is not the components of cultural political economy that should make this perspective distinctive, but the way the components made visible by CPE interact and relate to each other’ (p. 393). Whilst acknowledging that the modified CPE approach requires more detailed empirical application and testing, Jones illustrates its potential through a study of the skills society in the UK which highlights, for example, how key policy statements on the knowledge-based economy and welfare-to-work agendas work in tandem to advocate a work-first approach to tackling unemployment.

No explanation is provided as to how, or to what extent, the various indicators relate to the overall definition of regional competitiveness (see also Chapter 4). This reveals the existence of considerable confusion within policy circles as to whether a region’s competitiveness is simply reflected in its overall levels of prosperity, or whether the conditions shaping the region’s ability to sustain its macroeconomic performance are more or less important considerations. The outcome is a conception of regional competitiveness that is a chaotic mix of productivity, prosperity and the development of numerous different attributes of the business environment.

Regional competitiveness is more clearly intended to refer to the relative economic prosperity of a region, although again there is considerable confusion as to what this actually means and when a situation of ‘competitiveness’ has indeed been achieved. There are fundamental problems in equating competitiveness directly with macroeconomic performance or living standards in a region, not least because of the vagueness which surrounds the conditions that are required to ensure regions with productive firms can generate the high profits and wages critical to enabling them to sustain prosperous economies.
