(p.88) 5 Economic Change
Race, Religion, and Economic Change in the Republican South

Matthew T. Corrigan

University Press of Florida

This chapter begins with a description of the Jacksonville economy. It then discusses various consequences of economic change. In addition, it looks at how the Republicans benefit from current economic trends, how the Republican philosophy does not address poverty, and the lack of a Democratic economic strategy. It is argued that Republican leadership matters in Jacksonville and the South because it matches the pro-business political party with a pro-business region of the United States. Republican political leaders will continue to seek aggressively new economic opportunities through tax incentives and less burdensome regulatory schemes. These strategies bode well for well-educated and skilled Southerners. Yet, the emergence of Republican leadership may make it difficult to address issues such as the large wage gap and poverty.
