    Distributional Impacts of Climate Change and Disasters

    Edited by Matthias Ruth, María E. Ibarrarán

    The transfer of new, economically useful knowledge from universities to the regional economy has recently attracted the attention of academics, professionals and policymakers alike. This book focuses on three issues at the centre of current research: the geography of academic knowledge transfers, the mechanisms of these transfers with regard to academic entrepreneurship and graduate mobility, and policy experience in university-based regional economic development.

  8. Technological Change and Mature Industrial Regions

    Technological Change and Mature Industrial Regions

    Edited by Mahtab A. Farshchi, Odile E.M. Janne, Philip McCann
    Technological Change and Mature Industrial Regions explicitly adopts an inter-disciplinary approach to analysing the structural transformation of mature regions. The major focus of the book is from an economics perspective, but it also employs sociological analyses, business history approaches and technological analyses. It critically considers the identification and development of regional capabilities and regional policy initiatives for mature industrial areas in the context of globalisation and technological change. Specific cases from a range of different countries help to distinguish which aspects of mature regions’ technology, knowledge or structure are region-specific, and which are more generally applicable to mature industrial regions throughout the world. The book will prove to be invaluable for academic researchers as well as government and policy communities. Learn More

    Regional Economic Policy in Europe

    Edited by Ulrike Stierle-von Schütz, Michael H. Stierle, Frederic B. Jennings Jr, Adrian T.H. Kuah
    Regional Economic Policy in Europe presents a tightly focused selection of policy, empirical and theoretical perspectives on contemporary dimensions of regional economic policy in the EU. It concentrates on three areas; the dissimilarities and resulting convergence of disparate regions within the EU; the localisation of economic activities and how regions can understand and manage them and, finally, the experiences and lessons that can be drawn from European regional policy. While exploring EU cohesion and regional development more widely, the book also examines Spanish, Belgian and Eastern European experiences on growth, human capital, foreign investment and technological spillovers.

  13. Economic Integration in East Asia

    Economic Integration in East Asia

    Edited by Masahisa Fujita, Satoru Kumagai, Koji Nishikimi
    Increasing numbers of free trade and economic partnership agreements have been concluded among many countries in East Asia, and economic integration has progressed rapidly on both a de facto and de jure basis. However, as the authors of this book argue, integration may intensify regional inequalities in East Asia and so this process has attracted much attention of late. Will it actually succeed in achieving greater economic growth or will it in fact cause growing regional disparity? Learn More

  14. Linkages between China’s Regions

    Linkages between China’s Regions

    Nicolaas Groenewold, Anping Chen, Guoping Lee
    The rate of economic growth in China over the last 50 years has been remarkable. However this has only highlighted the inequalities between regions in China, making for considerable disquiet at the highest levels of Chinese policy-making. Not everyone has benefited from the same levels of prosperity and this book examines the many and varied policy solutions and proposals that have been applied to this thorny problem. The authors find that the industrial core of China (the South East and the Changjiang and Yellow River regions) is reasonably well integrated but not well connected to the remainder of the country. Indeed, evidence suggests that development in coastal areas comes at the expense of that in the interior while much of the policy designed to boost the interior actually flows to the coastal provinces.

  18. Creative Cities, Cultural Clusters and Local Economic Development

    Creative Cities, Cultural Clusters and Local Economic Development

    Edited by Philip Cooke, Luciana Lazzeretti
    This book analyses the economic development of cities from the ‘cultural economy’ and ‘creative industry’ perspectives, examining and differentiating them as two related but distinct segments of contemporary city economies. The authors argue that although they are normally conflated, the first is largely subsidized while the second is highly entrepreneurial hence they actually make very different kinds of contribution to a city’s character, attractiveness and competitiveness.

    Entrepreneurship, Industrial Location and Economic Growth

    Edited by Jopep M. Arauzo-Carod, Miguel C. Manjón-Antolín
    This book examines the interrelations between entrepreneurship, industrial location and economic growth. Thus, it covers a wide range of topics, including: the economic impact of entrepreneurship; industry dynamics; growth and survival of firms; firm location and globalisation patterns; and agglomeration and growth. The chapters in the book demonstrate the need to adopt a broad perspective that combines insights from different strands of literature if we are to better understand these complex economic phenomena. In addition, the original empirical evidence from a range of different countries provides a sound foundation for developing appropriate guidance for policymakers. Learn More

  20. Economic Integration and Spatial Location of Firms and Industries

    Economic Integration and Spatial Location of Firms and Industries

    Edited by Miroslav N. Jovanović
    Progress in technology and moves towards a liberal economic policy have caused a number of economic activities to become highly mobile. This raises important questions regarding the future location of economic activity: where will firms locate or relocate and how will firms and industries fit into space that is influenced by economic integration? Through his selection of key previously published articles, Professor Jovanović aims to provide a survey of the theoretical foundations of spatial location of firms and industries, and to explore the impact of economic integration on this process.
