Edited by Åke E. Andersson, Emeritus Professor of Economics, Department of Economics, Finance and Statistics, Jönköping International Business School, Jönköping and Emeritus Professor of Infrastructural Economics, Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden and David Emanuel Andersson, Senior Lecturer in Economics, Centre of Commerce and Management, RMIT University, Hanoi, Vietnam
Publication Date: 2000 ISBN: 978 1 84064 389 3 Extent: 416 pp
In the post-industrial network economy, international gateway regions are becoming increasingly important. These gateway regions are the nodes (defined as a city or a city region) that act as saddle points between a region and the global economy. While gateway regions have existed ever since inter-regional trade was first practised, new non-trade networks, and the wider global economy, have made these regions more complex. The book includes discussions of infrastructure networks such as the internet and air transport, as well as networking activities such as long-distance scientific cooperation, financial networks and direct investments. The contributors have expertise in fields such as regional economics, economic geography, institutional economics and business administration.

In the post-industrial network economy, international gateway regions are becoming increasingly important. These gateway regions are the nodes (defined as a city or a city region) that act as saddle points between a region and the global economy. While gateway regions have existed ever since inter-regional trade was first practised, new non-trade networks, and the wider global economy, have made these regions more complex. The book includes discussions of infrastructure networks such as the internet and air transport, as well as networking activities such as long-distance scientific cooperation, financial networks and direct investments. The contributors have expertise in fields such as regional economics, economic geography, institutional economics and business administration.

The book offers in-depth analysis of both existing and developing gateway regions in three sections:
• North America
• Asia-Pacific
• Europe

Economists and researchers with an interest in regions, the knowledge economy and institutions will find this book of great value. It will also be of interest to economic geographers, regional planners and development agencies.
Critical Acclaim
