    Building Knowledge Regions in North America

    Leonel Corona, Jérôme Doutriaux, Sarfraz A. Mian
    Focusing on emerging technology regions of the US, Canada and Mexico, the authors provide an analysis of firms’ innovative milieus in three contexts: national systems of innovation, knowledge regions and incubation mechanisms. An overview of the evolution of each region over the past quarter century is presented, along with an evaluation of the effectiveness of science parks and technology incubators in various regional and national environments.

  2. Vanishing Growth in Latin America

    Vanishing Growth in Latin America

    Edited by Andrés Solimano
    Economic growth in Latin America and the rise of material welfare has lagged behind that of more dynamic areas of the world economy. In a region prone to policy experiments, the policies of the Washington Consensus applied since the 1990s failed to bring sustained growth to most of Latin America. Andrés Solimano and an impressive set of contributors analyze the last 40 years in order to determine the role of economic reforms, external conditions, factor accumulation, income inequality, political instability and productivity in explaining GDP increases. The book also looks at cycles of growth, identifying periods of rapid growth and contrasting them with periods of stagnation and collapse. Learn More

  3. Smart Growth and Climate Change

    Smart Growth and Climate Change

    Edited by Matthias Ruth
    This invaluable book brings together two strands of applied research that to date have only been carried out in isolation from each other – ‘smart growth’ research and research into adaptation to climate change and variability. Both entail similar concerns, draw on complementary modelling tools and are concerned with bridging the gaps that may exist between science and engineering stakeholder interests and policy implementation. By providing theory, models and case studies from North America, Oceania and Europe this books helps to create synergies between the two research strands, reconcile differences and provide insights and possible future direction for decision makers at national and local levels.

  4. New East Asian Regionalism

    New East Asian Regionalism

    Edited by Charles Harvie, Fukunari Kimura, Hyun-Hoon Lee
    East Asian countries – currently the most dynamic region of the global economy – have recently pursued trade liberalization through the adoption of various forms of bilateral and plurilateral Free Trade Agreements (FTAs). The book explores the key issues and possible outcomes arising from this departure from the region’s traditional multilateral approach to trade liberalization. Implications of this new approach for the region as a whole, and key participating individual economies and blocs of economies, are emphasized. Learn More

  5. European Economic Integration and South-East Europe

    European Economic Integration and South-East Europe

    Edited by Klaus Liebscher, Josef Christl, Peter Mooslechner, Doris Ritzberger-Grünwald
    With both transition dynamics and the EU integration process having shifted to the south-east of Europe, a region fairly marginalized in the literature, this book fills a gap by taking stock of where South-East Europe’s economies and institutions stood in 2004. The authors evaluate the potential for investment and growth within the South-East European region, including the role of trade and FDI, and discuss the challenges associated with unemployment, poverty and ‘brain drain’. The book also provides insights into the particular monetary and exchange rate policies applied, including cases of ‘euroization’, and finally makes an assessment, against this background, of the European perspective of the countries of South-East Europe.

    Edited by Charlie Karlsson, Börje Johansson, Roger R. Stough
    This book provides a state-of-the-art overview of spatial industrial clusters and inter-firm networks. Given the prevailing political belief that clusters can be a major vehicle for economic development and growth, it is important to have a sound understanding of clusters and how they emerge, grow, eventually stagnate and disappear.

  10. Regional Economies as Knowledge Laboratories

    Regional Economies as Knowledge Laboratories

    Edited by Philip Cooke, Andrea Piccaluga
    Today, the study of regions is central to academic analysis and policy deliberation on how to respond to the rise of the knowledge economy. Regional Economies as Knowledge Laboratories illustrates how newer types of regional analysis – utilising scientometrics, knowledge services measures and university networks, and concepts such as knowledge life cycles, experimental knowledge creation, and knowledge ethics – are leading to a perception that regional economies increasingly resemble knowledge laboratories.

  12. On the Edge of the Global Economy

    On the Edge of the Global Economy

    Edited by Jacques Poot
    On the Edge of the Global Economy contends that despite growing global economic integration, some nations continue to be disadvantaged by remoteness, low connectivity, a small-scale economy and low population density. The book concludes that these economies may nonetheless have significant potential, for example through offering an attractive natural environment, a pleasant climate, various types of niche production and customised services that can lure footloose firms and mobile workers.

    Knowledge Spillovers and Knowledge Management

    Edited by Charlie Karlsson, Per Flensburg, Sven-Åke Hörte
    This book reveals the key importance, in terms of international competitiveness, of firms’ capability to adapt to, and develop, new technologies. At the same time, the authors argue that the sheer complexity of emerging technologies is such that the knowledge involved in their creation is likely to be dispersed and distributed between many individuals and over numerous locations.

  17. Globalization and the Location of Firms

    Globalization and the Location of Firms

    Edited by John Cantwell
    This authoritative collection reprints the key articles in the field of locational clustering, and the relationship between local clusters and the activities of multinational firms. It covers both the principal theoretical and statistical explanations of the clustering of firms in common locations, and includes a selection of important empirical studies of this phenomenon. Special attention is given to the role played by knowledge spillovers, and notably the geographical dimension of the relationship between firms and universities. Further articles demonstrate how, contrary to some popular beliefs, globalisation is not only consistent with the emergence of a new emphasis upon locational clustering, but in many ways it has helped to promote the differentiation of the productive capabilities of different locations, and so has reinforced clustering and reflected it.
