From a regulationist perspective, this paper wants to analyse under which preconditions local and nacional modes of development can diverge. Taking the modern history of Vienna and Austria as an example, the paper analyses the dialectics of accumulation strategies and nacional and local state projects. There can be distinguished four relevant historical períods. With regard to the convergence resp. divergence of local and nacional state projects, the two rather stable and the two rather instable períods stand in marked contrast to each other. The more general conclusion that can be derived from the Viennese experience is that a heterogeneous regional development is only a necessary, but not a sufficient condition for a local state project to diverge from the nacional one. It seems that popular forces can only establish a counter-project at the local level if the nacional dominant bloc fails to gain mass acceptance for its ideological dispensation and an emerging counter bloc is able to capitalise on this weakness by formulating its own social project.
