This essay focuses on a range of specific practical and analytical problems associated with the link between regional and minority languages and the economy, giving particular attention to the Gaelic, Welsh and Irish contexts. In each of these, long-standing underlying dynamics of relative under-development, outmigration and pull to the centre constrain initiatives to expand the economic role of the languages, while opportunities may mainly lie in niche sectors whose economic impact is relatively limited.
