  1. Multinational Firms’ Location and the New Economic Geography

    Multinational Firms’ Location and the New Economic Geography

    Edited by Jean-Louis Mucchielli, Thierry Mayer
    This book analyses how foreign direct investors choose their locations, whilst exploring the forces which shape international economic geography. Although these two issues are, to some extent, inter-related, researchers have only recently acknowledged the similarity of economic geography and international business approaches to the empirical assessment of likely causes of the degree of spatial concentration observed in many modern industries.

  4. Private Property in the 21st Century

    Private Property in the 21st Century

    Edited by Harvey M. Jacobs
    Private property is central to American character, culture and democracy. The founding fathers understood it as key to the liberties America was designed to foster. However, over the last 200 years what one owns has evolved; ownership is different now than for an owner 200, 100, even 50 years ago. Harvey Jacobs has brought together an interdisciplinary, politically divergent group of contributors to speculate on private property’s future. Learn More

    The Evolutionary Analysis of Economic Policy

    Edited by Pavel Pelikan, Gerhard Wegner
    This important book analyses evolutionary approaches to economic policy. Its main purpose is to explore the policy implications of evolutionary economics, in particular of approaches inspired on the one hand by Schumpeter and revived by Nelson and Winter which deal with industrial evolution under constant institutions and, on the other hand, of approaches inspired by Hayek and North, which analyse the ways in which institutions themselves evolve.

    Edited by Gertrude Tumpel-Gugerell, Peter Mooslechner

Moreover, the potential to achieve a sustainable catch-up process in Western Balkan countries, the Ukraine and Russia is explored, focusing on the task facing the EU in designing proper policies vis-à-vis these countries. The contributors’ varied perspectives ensure that the theories and policies postulated are linked closely with the actual situation in accession countries and offer up-to-date insights. Learn More

  9. From Industrial Districts to Local Development

    From Industrial Districts to Local Development

    Giacomo Becattini, Marco Bellandi, Gabi Dei Ottati, Fabio Sforzi
    From Industrial Districts to Local Development introduces a set of papers representing the main contribution of the ‘Florence school’ to the recent literature on industrial districts. The authors illustrate that the revitalisation of the concept of industrial districts, returning to Alfred Marshall’s nineteenth-century writings, is rooted in an unconventional interpretation of the economic development of Tuscany after the Second World War.

    Edited by Tim Turpin, Xielin Liu, Sam Garrett-Jones, Peter Burns

Six regional studies comprehensively document the experiences of firms engaged in product or process innovation. The book also examines the institutions that support research and development and the impact of government policies on innovation in each of the regions studied. Learn More

  13. Creating Capitalism

    Creating Capitalism

    Patricia Dillon, Frank C. Wykoff
    Employing historical analysis and building on growth theory and modern political economy, Dillon and Wykoff explain Soviet disintegration and analyze efforts to create capitalism in newly independent states. They show how five fundamental economic reforms generate growth, and use an original model to test the connections between reforms, elections and economic performance. The authors examine the progress of six countries (Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Russia and Slovakia) in terms of each country’s history and its successful application of the five reforms. Anyone interested in how capitalism works and why pro-market reforms encounter resistance in spite of their potential for generating higher living standards will find this book essential reading.

  14. Industrial Location Economics

    Industrial Location Economics

    Edited by Philip McCann

Understanding the reasons behind this and understanding exactly how industries are spatially organized is the central theme of this book. Industrial Location Economics discusses different aspects of industrial location behaviour from a variety of theoretical and empirical perspectives. Each of the analytical traditions provides insights into the nature of industrial location behaviour and the factors which can influence it. Learn More
