The export role of producer services There is now a wealth of evidence that producer services export (Beyers and Alvine 1985, Coffey 1995b, Esparza and Krmenec 1994, Goe 1994, Harrington 1995a and b, Harrington et al. 1991, Moulaert and Todtling 1995b, O’Tarrell 1993, O’Farrell and Moffatt 1995, O’Farrell et al. 1992, 1995). Examining producer services in New York City, for example, Drennan (1992) finds that two-thirds of all export earnings are generated by this sector. In a study of the Central Puget Sound region, meanwhile, Beyers and Alvine (1985) discover that producer services conduct over a third of their business outside the region, and that the employment resulting from service activities is as large as export-related employment in manufacturing.

This model of geographical dispersion, therefore, parallels the developments in manufacturing, both in terms of the resulting spatial divisions of labour and in terms of the limited local economic impacts of the branches, franchises and sub-contracted activity (for example Foley et al. 1996). This dispersion process, moreover, is not occurring evenly. It is a concentrated decentralization. In the Nordic countries, Illeris and 32 PRODUCER SERVICES Sjoholt (1995) identify that producer services have not spread to peripheral less dynamic regions, as does Daniels (1995a and b) in the UK, who finds that although there is some intra-regional redistribution from the largest cities to adjacent towns, the interregional distribution of producer services remains heavily concentrated in the affluent southern core of the country, especially of higher-order business services (Daniels 1995a and b, Howells 1988).

And are locally oriented activities less important than externally oriented activities so far as local economic revitalization is concerned? Consumer services: dependent activity or engine of growth? Despite the abundance of literature which displays that producer services export their products, and their consequent redefinition as basic-sector activities, consumer services have been subject to little or no equivalent investigation. Instead, they frequently remain relegated to the subordinate status of being dependent activities.
