From combines to computers : rural services and development in the age of information technology by Amy Glasmeier( )

9 editions published between 1995 and 1999 in English and held by 1,745 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Through an analysis of national data and detailed case studies, From Combines to Computers examines how the transition to a service economy is playing out for rural America. It answers two important questions: Will services fill the gap left by lost farming, manufacturing, and mining jobs? And will services stabilize, even revitalize, rural areas? Glasmeier and Howland document the intraregional spatial patterns and trends of services in the national economy, compare services in urban and rural communities, and identify the potential and limitations of rural development strategies based on services. In particular, they document the growing dominance of branch plants, the displacement of "mom-and-pop" enterprises, and the declining access to services for residents in the least populated rural areas. The authors conclude that services are unlikely to be the basis of widespread sustainable development unless policies are designed to help firms and communities compete successfully in an increasingly global and information-based economy."--BOOK JACKET
An atlas of poverty in America : one nation, pulling apart, 1960-2003 by Amy Glasmeier( )

10 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 613 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Persistant poverty has long been one of America's most pressing and intractable problems. According to some estimates, by 2003, almost twenty-five percent of the America's countries had per-capita incomes below one half the national average, high unemployment, low labour force participation rates, and a high dependency on government transfer payments--all measures of economic distress. 'An Atlas of Poverty in America' shows how and where America's regional development patterns have become more uneven, and graphically illustrates the increasing number of communities falling behind the national economic average. Readers will be able to use this Atlas to see how major events and trends have impacted the scope and extent of American poverty in the past half-century: economic globalization, the rise of the sunbelt, decline of the welfare state, and the civil rights movement. Also includes 195 colour maps."--

The high-tech potential : economic development in rural America by Amy Glasmeier( Book )

15 editions published between 1972 and 2017 in English and held by 384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rural America is at a crossroads in its economic development. Like regions of other First World nations, the traditional economic base of rural communities in the United States is rapidly deteriorating. Natural resources, including agriculture, show little prospect for generating future job growth, and manufacturing has become a new source of instability. Faced with these changes and an increasing vulnerability to international economic events, rural communities have begun to seek high-technology industries and advanced services as candidates for job growth and economic stability. What is the potential for high-tech growth outside the largest cities? What is the role of high-tech industry in the economic development of non-metropolitan America? This book provides a hard-nosed look at the high-tech potential in rural economic development. Some of the questions Glasmeier addresses include: Are rural areas attractive to high tech? Will high tech follow earlier patterns and filter down the lowest-paid jobs to rural areas? Will rural communities be bypassed completely for even lower-wage Third World locations? Glasmeier answers in a sober analysis that separates fact from myth. Empirical data reveals the kinds of high-tech jobs that locate in rural areas, and the kinds of rural areas that attract high-tech jobs. This analysis leads to a highly critical evaluation of state and local economic development policy and recommendations for its improvement. This book is a must for policymakers, practitioners, scholars, and an informed public interested in the promise of high tech and the future of US economic development."--Provided by publisher

Manufacturing time : global competition in the watch industry, 1795-2000 by Amy Glasmeier( Book )

6 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book recounts the story of the quest for supremacy in the manufacture of watches - from the cottage industries of Britain; to the workshops and factories of Switzerland and, later, the United States; to the high-tech plants of Japan and the sweat-shops of Hong Kong. Amy K. Glasmeier traces the history of this technologically rich industry over three continents, five countries, and more than 200 years. In doing so, she also sheds light on many of the broader questions of industrial development." "This work belongs on the desks of scholars and students of economic history, business history and strategy, economic geography, history of technology, and world regional development. It will also appeal to analysts and policymakers concerned with local wealth creation and economic stability, as well as anyone interested in the history of watches and watchmaking."--BOOK JACKET
