“Because I am who I am and my mother is Scottish”: Neoliberal Planning, Entrepreneurial Instincts and the Political Ecology of Trump International Golf Links Scotland

Jönsson, Erik LU and Baeten, Guy LU (2014) In Space & Polity 18(1). p.54-69
Abstract (Swedish)
Abstract in Undetermined

Focusing on the establishment of the first European Trump Golf development – on the Menie Estate along the Scottish North Sea coast – the paper contends that neoliberal planning, understood as state interventions to allow individual entrepreneurs to realise their visions, reshapes both planning practice and the socio-ecologies governed by planning in problematic ways. Neoliberal mindsets here cause politicians to depart from previously established practices. The paper analyses how governance becomes tied up in questions of entrepreneurial freedom and with beliefs in the capacity of an individual entrepreneur to steer the fate of the region.
