ABSTRACT
Growth theories such as the "political economy of place" suggest that local elites and elected officials tend to have a strong orientation to a growth ideology. This research extends aspects of Molotch's and Logan's theories of growth by studying the growth and nongrowth orientations of elected officials in both nnetropolitan and nonmetropolitan locations.
