Postindustrial East Asian cities : innovation for growth by Shahid Yusuf( Book )

34 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Throughout East Asia, the growth process and its sources are changing in a number of important respects, especially for middle- and high-income economies. Growth is increasingly coming from the strength of innovative activities in these economies rather than from factor accumulation as in the past. Such innovative activities - especially in producer services and the creative industries - are concentrated in high-tech clusters in globally linked cities."

Global production networking and technological change in East Asia by Shahid Yusuf( Book )

38 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the coming decades, globalization will force East Asian countries to come to terms with a far more demanding global market environment. Their ability to capitalize on the opportunities inherent in this environment will rest in no small part on acquired technological capability and IT skills and on how East Asian firms enlarge the gains from participating in global production networks. Government macroeconomic policies and institution building activities will be vital for sustaining competitiveness and growth but the initiative of firms will be the critical factor in assuring that the future for East Asia is as bright as the past three decades. The experience of a number of economies points insistently towards the contribution of large firms to innovation, as well as the branding and marketing of products on a global scale. An environment that is conducive to the growth of national firms that can compete against the multi-national corporations on world markets, match their innovative capability, and vie with them in creating global production networks would be part and parcel of a development strategy pegged to technological advance. The papers in Global Production Networking and

China urbanizes : consequences, strategies, and policies by Shahid Yusuf( Book )

27 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in English and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rural-urban migration is playing an increasingly important role in shaping the economic and demographic landscape of Chinese cities. Over the past two decades, China has transformed itself from a relatively immobile society to one in which more than 10 percent of the population are migrants. China's mobility rate is still low compared with that of advanced industrial economies, the sheer size of the migrant flows and their dramatic economic and social consequences have already profoundly affected economic growth and urban development. Looking ahead, decision makers at all levels will need to craft policies that address issues of migration and rural-urban migrants issues that are hotly debated among scholars, Chinese policy makers, and others. This report presents recent findings that describe migration patterns and changes since the 1980s

Two dragon heads : contrasting development paths for Beijing and Shanghai by Shahid Yusuf( Book )

19 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In broad terms, the sources of economic growth are well understood, but relatively few countries have succeeded in effectively harnessing this knowledge for policy purposes so as to sustain high rates of growth over an extended period of time. Among the ones that have done so, China stands out. Its gross domestic product (GDP) growth rate, which averaged almost 10 percent between 1978 and 2008, is unmatched. Even more remarkable is the performance of China's three leading industrial regions: the Bohai region, the Pearl River Delta, and the Yangtze River (Changjiang) delta area. These regions have averaged growth rates well above 11 percent since 1985. Shanghai is the urban axis of the Yangtze River Delta's thriving economy; Beijing is the hinge of the Bohai region. Their performance and that of a handful of other urban regions will determine China's economic fortunes and innovativeness in the coming decades. The balance of this volume is divided into five chapters. Chapter two encapsulates the sources of China's growth and the current and future role of urban regions in China. The case for the continuing substantial presence of manufacturing industry for growth and innovation in the two urban centers is made in chapter three. Chapter four briefly examines the economic transformation of four global cities and distills stylized trends that can inform future development in Beijing and Shanghai. Chapter five describes the industrial structure of the two cities, identifies promising industrial areas, and analyzes the resource base that would underpin growth fueled by innovation. Finally, chapter six suggests how strategy could be reoriented on the basis of the lessons delineated in chapter four and the economic capabilities presented in chapter five
Changing the industrial geography in Asia : the impact of China and India by Shahid Yusuf( Book )

16 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A great burst of globalization brought the 20th century to a close, creating upheaval in the world economy from roughly 1995 to 2008. And now, with the new century barely commenced, a second upheaval is in the offing following the severe financial crisis that plunged the global economy into recession in 2008-09. The first upheaval witnessed a massive migration of manufacturing and certain business services that transformed Asia into the industrial heartland of the world. The second upheaval will likely consolidate Asia's industrial preeminence and could result in a concentration of industrial activities in the two most populous and fastest growing Asian economies - China and India. As the two Asian giants become the industrial equals of the United States, Germany, and Japan, the ramifications will affect trade and growth worldwide, the future of development in China and India, and industrialization throughout Asia. This book examines these developments, focusing specifically on China and India. Its analysis and conclusions will be of particular interest to policy makers and academics, as well as anyone with an interest in the impacts of China and India on Asia's industrial activities."--Publisher
Growing industrial clusters in Asia : serendipity and science( Book )

19 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Industrial clusters in Silicon Valley, Hsinchu Park, and northern Italy, and in the vicinity of Cambridge, U.K., have captured the imaginations of policy makers, researchers, city planners, and business people. Where clusters take root, they can generate valuable spillovers, promote innovation, and create the critical industrial mass for sustained growth. This book offers guidance on the nature of clusters and the likely efficacy of measures that could help build a cluster. It draws on the experience of both established dynamic clusters and newly emerging ones that show considerable promise. This book will be of interest to policy makers, urban planners, business people, and researchers."--Jacket
Tiger economies under threat : a comparative analysis of Malaysia's industrial prospects and policy options by Shahid Yusuf( Book )

17 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Southeast Asian tiger economies feel threatened by competition from other countries and worry that their growth momentum might be flagging. Even though their growth rates are above the average for the world and for developing countries, they fall short of yesterday's economic performance. The underlying worry is that they presage the beginning of a downward trend, the harbingers of which are lower rates of investment, persistently low rates of total factor productivity and low levels of innovativeness. The South East Asian tigers' worries motivate three questions: First, are the tigers rightly threatened by a creeping economic sclerosis or what some observers are calling the ""middle income trap""? Second, if the threat is real, what are the underlying causes? Third, are there ways of neutralizing the problems and at least maintaining if not raising the growth rates of the recent past? This book tackles these questions by means of a comparative analysis of the Southeast Asian tiger economies, centered on Malaysia. This analysis draws upon a comprehensive set of techniques and indicators to assess competitive pressures, gauge industrial and technological capabilities and to indicate the directions of industrial change in Southeast Asia could take -- World Bank website
Geography of growth : spatial economics and competitiveness by Raj Nallari( Book )

12 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the 1990s, new economic geography has received a lot of attention as mainstream economists such as Krugman and others began to focus on where economic activity occurs and why. Coincidentally, international trade, location theory, and urban economics all appear to be asking the same question: where is economic activity located and why? The challenge is to explain the economic concentration or agglomeration of a large number of activities in certain geographical space. This volume breaks down the various types of cities and evaluates the key factors used to look at cities, such as innovation, green growth, spatial concentration, and smart cities in order to understand how cities work. Why is it that certain cities attract talent? How do some cities become business hubs? Why is it that few cities become increasingly competitive while others remain stagnant? As development specialists are increasingly focusing on how to make cities competitive, this book can serve as a guide for providing key insights, backed by cases on how cities can possibly become more competitive and productive
Some small countries do it better : rapid growth and its causes in Singapore, Finland, and Ireland by Shahid Yusuf( Book )

19 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Countries worldwide are struggling to imitate the industrial prowess of the East Asian pacesetters, but growth accelerations have proven remarkably transient. Building a portfolio of tradable goods and services and steadily raising the level of investment in these activities, has generally defied the best policy efforts - in particular, bringing investment ratios on par with East Asian averages has presented the greatest challenge. Hence the search is on for growth recipes not so tightly bound to investment, to manufacturing activities, and to the export of manufactured products. In casting ar
