Regional growth

This is from yesterday's Lex column in the Financial Times (6 Oct 05): "There is a greater variation in economic growth rates between regions within major countries than between the countries themselves. The most striking example is the UK, which has both the region with the highest and that with the lowest growth of the countries shown. In several countries, healthy national growth numbers driver by a minority of regions conceal localised recession."
