  1. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Knowledge Spillovers and Knowledge Management

    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.

  8. 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.

  11. 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.

    Heinz G. Preusse
    This book provides a broad quantitative analysis of the new facets of regionalism in the Americas.

  13. 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

    Economic Convergence and Divergence in Europe

    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

  16. 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.

  17. Industrial Location Economics

    Industrial Location Economics

    Edited by Philip McCann
    Because space is not homogenous, economic activities occur in different locations. 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
