The investment activity of cities in the context of their administrative status: A case study from Poland
Katarzyna Przybyła , Marian Kachniarz , David Ramsey
AbstractThis article aims to identify and assess the investment activity of major Polish cities, taking into account the division into current voivodship cities (regional capitals) and former regional capitals which, as a result of reforms in the public administration system carried out in Poland in the 1990s, lost this function. Based on a group of diagnostic features (cities' investment expenditure per capita, the capital expenditure of cities as a percentage of their total expenditure, the capital expenditure of cities as a percentage of their own revenue), taxonomic synthetic measures were constructed for the studied cities. This research covers the years 2004–2015 – a period of particular investment intensity caused by the inflow of EU funds. It was concluded that even though the status and revenue potential of a city are, to some extent, determined by its investment activity, there are, however, clear examples showing that an appropriate local policy can modify these determinants.
