ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the enterprise zone policy of U.S. President Ronald Reagan in 1980. The goal of the policy is to improve and revitalize inner cities. This idea of refurbishing the ailing inner cities has risen at a time when people of widely differing persuasions seem willing to accept it. Meanwhile, the Urban Jobs and Enterprise Zone Act of 1980 would establish several triggering devices to qualify an area for its attentions. The interest of many people to enterprise zones suggests the growing disenchantment with the top-down urban planning of the past.
