Is it competition or infighting?

Some may recall that last year the Charlotte Regional Partnership hired away Ronnie Bryant from the Pittsburgh Regional Alliance. The CRP just released a study on the impact of intra-regional tax incentives. You can read more in this article in the Charlotte Business Journal. You can get a feel for why the CRP needed a little Pittsburgh expertise down there. Ronnie gained some first hand knowledge of intra-regional competition (a more polite way of saying 'infighting') while in town. How to get regions to work together is an issue almost everywhere becasue there just isn't a level of goverment that is empowered to act across counties in most of the US. For this study to be commissioned this must have been perceived to be a problem in the Charlotte area. Yet, according to this press account, the study concludes it's not as big an issue as it may appear. It is an interesting question what a similar study for the Pittsburgh region would conclude.
