  1. “Jobs Underpin Recovery”. Discuss The Big Picture? Stuart Gulliver

  2. Economic performance is central to the success of the city economy • Sustainable city recovery is fundamentally about job growth and incomes

  3. By ‘Jobs’ we can mean 3 things • the quantity of jobs (in ‘survival’ period this is a priority) • the quality of jobs (pay levels, skill levels) • job direction (“Glasgow jobs for Glasgow people”)

  4. Job Growth comes about because of 4 rates of change - a sort of ‘Corporate demography’ • birth rate of business • death rate of business • growth rate of existing businesses (and institutions) • migration rate of existing business (and institutions)

  5. 3 Models of Job Generation pursued by cities over last 30 years I II III ‘Survivalism’ Get any job you can ‘Re-structuring’ Economic self-improvement ‘Post-Industrial’ Seeking competitiveness in the global economy Indigenous business, small business, technology sectors, risk capital Focus Both indigenous and exogenous Chasing FDI E-Zones, tax breaks, sector parks, business services Get ‘basics’ right, connectivity, talent, amenity, networks Deep subsidy, low costs, skills available Approach

  6. Particular Approaches to Job Generation - & the growth of ‘fadism’ i) Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) • USA, Japan. ‘Branch plant’ & later subsidiary entrepreneurship. ‘Silicon Glen’ ii) Technology Sectors • Electronics, Health Care, Advanced Engineering, Financial Services, Oil & Gas, Tourism iii) ‘Picking Winners’ SDA had an investment capability iv) New firm formation and small business development Motivated by U.S. research by Birch v) Commercialisation and Technology Transfer vi) Clusters

  8. Our Competitors - 4 themes emerging 1. Get the basics right and do them really well • external connectivity • human capital • quality of built environment / amenity 2. Universities & research centres as key institutions 3. Focussed business development • SME Support systems • promotion of entrepreneurialism 4. Appropriate Development Mechanisms

  9. The Glasgow Approach • What is amenable to change at the city level? Macro factors affect 80% of what happens at city level • Strategy of “rowing, steering and cheering” • Difficulty of identifying which economic activities will be key at the city level in the future

  10. 1. External Connectivity Route development, “Use it or lose it campaign” 2. Other supply side activity • creation of modern, attractive business locations & sites • quality of labour market • access to investment funds, venture capital 3. Universities designated as a Key Industry 4. Focused Business Development 5. Strategic Marketing 6. Implementation - delivery focus; making Glasgow an easy place to invest in
