The complexity of transportation systems and their negative social and environmentaleffects are today at the centre of attention.

Entrepreneurship and economic growth in China( )

12 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 1,337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides an analysis of the existing economic dynamics and factors contributing to entrepreneurship in China. Featuring contributions from prominent authors such as Zoltan Acs and Jian Gao, it first poses a theoretical question of whether entrepreneurship exists in China and, if so, the extent and form it takes. This book also examines whether the nature of entrepreneurship in China differs from that elsewhere. Following this investigation, empirical tests and analyses focus on important issues such as: What is the special value of entrepreneurship in China? Does entrepreneurship in
Regional economic development : analysis and planning strategy by R. J Stimson( )

37 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and held by 852 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The second edition of this book is completely reedited making the book even more valuable for graduate students, reflecting recent advances and adding insightful new material. The book is about the analysis of regional economic performance and change, and how analysis integrates with strategies for local and regional economic development policy and planning. First, the book provides the reader with an overview of key theoretical and conceptual contexts within which the economic development process takes place. However, the deliberate emphasis is to provide the reader with an account of quantitative and qualitative approaches to regional economic analysis and of old and new strategic frameworks for formulating regional economic development planning. The second edition brings to the present its original thesis about the need for regions to be fast and flexible, but also to be proactive in order to be prepared to experience increasingly greater shocks while having less time to adjust their economic development to achieve sustainability. This is underscored by events that have occurred since 2001: 9/11 terrorist attacks, continuing rapid advances in technology, the rise China and India, the Tsunami, and all the known on-going and unforeseen risks and challenges that confront nations around the globe and the regions and localities within them. The book presents strategies and the traditional and expanded methods used to create and implement them

Innovation, technology and knowledge by Charlie Karlsson( )

14 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 602 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the last four decades the developed economies have developed into veritable knowledge economies at the same time as more and more economies have entered the road to economic development. Typical for the developments during this time has been substantially increased investments in research and development (R & D) to generate new knowledge and new technologies and increased investments in diffusing existing knowledge by means of education and thereby raising the volume of human capital. However, many member states and regions within the EU are struggling with their economic development. This book explores the uneven patterns of development within the EU, discusses the relative effect of investments on innovation and productivity growth and looks at the mechanisms involved in economic development and policy"--Publisher website
Public policy in an entrepreneurial economy : creating the conditions for business growth by Zoltán J Ács( )

19 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 558 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent years there has been increased focus on understanding the dynamic relationships among entrepreneurship, policymaking, and economic growth. At the heart of research, debate, and practical application is the question: "Under what conditions can entrepreneurship flourish?" And the corollary: "To what degree does encouraging entrepreneurship result in economic growth?" A popular response is to argue for "entrepreneurship policy"--That is, targeted policies that are designed to promote innovation, entrepreneurship, and small business creation. To the editors and contributors of this volume, that approach is fundamentally flawed. They argue that there is no such thing as a discrete entrepreneurship policy; instead, there is only policymaking in the context of an entrepreneurial economy. In other words, all policies--from education and tax reform to securities regulation to immigration--should create an environment that is conducive to entrepreneurship. Presenting new research on such timely topics as health care policy, technology transfer, and intellectual property rights, they build a case for creating the conditions that will motivate entrepreneurs to launch and sustain new businesses. In the process, the book addresses policies operating at the individual, national, regional, and international levels, and offers a unique perspective on several institutional structures that enhance entrepreneurship and economic growth
Entrepreneurship and dynamics in the knowledge economy( )

16 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 527 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Entrepreneurship has long been seen as a major vehicle for economic development and growth and it has attracted researchers from a variety of disciplines with very diverse analytical approaches. The vast amount of research that has been conducted so far has raised certain pertinent questions which remain unanswered; questions such as: which model to apply in practical policy work? are other models equally viable? What are the implications of the different models? and how can and should they be used to guide the formulation and implementation of entrepreneurship policies? Entrepreneurship and Dynamics in the Knowledge Economy highlights the role of individual economic agents with endowments of new knowledge or new combinations of old knowledge as entrepreneurs, and thus identifies them as dynamic factors in the knowledge economy. The book also examines the role of clusters and agglomerations for these entrepreneurs in the knowledge economy
Drivers of innovation, entrepreneurship and regional dynamics by Karima Kourtit( )

18 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 472 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The need for informed and effective insights into key concepts and models of regional development and growth, from an endogenous growth perspective, has risen over the past decade. These recent advances address in particular local and regional assets and characteristics comprising inter alia creativity, knowledge, innovation forces and entrepreneurship. Access to and exploitation of these modern forms of human and social capital are of paramount importance for the dynamic regional economic environment in a city or region. This volume offers an overview and critical treatment of the spatial-eco
Information communication technology and economic development : learning from the Indian experience by Tojo Joseph Thatchenkery( )

14 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 458 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The contributors' findings suggest that India's ICT-led growth will accelerate in the next ten years, launching India as a major global economic power next to the US and China. This provocative and timely volume will be a necessary read for students and scholars of international business, public policy, economic development, management and strategy as well as all those interested in the impact of globalization on national and regional economies. Revealing insights regarding the complex process of globalization, this volume shows how the generation and circulation of intellectual capital in the US and India in ICT have led to greater productivity in the US while facilitating the economic development of India. India has become a highly visible participant in the information communication technology (ICT) industry. Since the 1990s, it has been one of the fastest growing economies in the world, emerging as the most watched test of global capitalism. The contributors to this volume examine how the ICT-driven development of India appears to have skipped the middle stages of the traditional economic development models and leapfrogged directly to the final stage whereby growth is mostly technologically driven. "Information Communication Technology and Economic Development" reveals new insights regarding the complex process of globalization. It shows how the generation and circulation of intellectual capital in the US and India in ICT have led to greater productivity in the US while facilitating the economic development of India. Most industrialized nations now see the vast intellectual capital-based services that India provides at extremely competitive rates as key to their own national competitiveness in the global arena

Theories of endogenous regional growth : lessons for regional policies by B Johansson( Book )

10 editions published in 2001 in English and German and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the last two decades a new growth theory has emerged - often labelled "endogenous economic growth". The contributions in the book develop these advances into a theoretical framework for endogenous regional economic growth and explain the implications for regional economic policies in the perspective of the new century. Endogenous growth models can reflect increasing returns and hence refer more adequately to empirical observations than earlier models, and the models become policy relevant, because in endogenous growth models policy matters. Such policies comprise efforts to stimulate the growth of knowledge intensity of the labour supply and knowledge production in the form of R & D
Air transport networks : theory and policy implications by Kenneth Button( Book )

13 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Leadership and institutions in regional endogenous development by R. J Stimson( Book )

12 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors of this book provide a detailed rationale and original theory for the study of leadership and institutional factors, including entrepreneurship, in the growth and development of cities and regions. They demonstrate why leadership, institutions and entrepreneurship can - and indeed do - play a crucial enhancing role as key elements in the process of regional endogenous growth. The so-called 'new growth theory' emphasizes endogenous processes. While some of the literature refers to leadership and institutional factors, there has been little analysis of the explicit roles these factors play in the growth and development of cities and regions. This book remedies that gap, beginning with a brief overview of the evolution of the 'new growth theory' in regional economic development, in which the emphasis is on endogenous factors. The book then discusses leadership and institutional factors in that context
Non-market entrepreneurship : interdisciplinary approaches by Gordon E Shockley( Book )

9 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Practitioners will also find much of value in this resource."--BOOK JACKET
Telecommunications, transportation, and location by Kenneth Button( Book )

8 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book looks at the economics of the evolving interface between the movement of people, goods and information (telecommunications). It illustrates the increasing importance of information flows in relation to how people move about, the ways that goods are transported and on land-use patterns. The authors show how the linkages involved are not static but vary as technology develops, as social priorities shift, and as policymakers adjust institutional structures. The situation is evolving but, nevertheless, from a public policy and a narrower commercial, business perspective, it is important to gain broad insights into what is occurring and the ways that telecommunications, transportation, and location interact. This is the focus of the book." "Telecommunications, Transportation and Location contains both synthesis and interpretations of what others have found in regard to these interactions as well as new work that extends earlier findings. The material is presented in a rigorous yet accessible manner to open it to a wide audience of practitioners concerned with policymaking within various levels of government and within private business." "Researchers and academics teaching courses including transportation planning, communications, regional science, urban and regional planning, urban and regional economics and transport economics will find much to engage them within this book. It will also be very useful to logistics professionals, and policymakers and practitioners involved in transportation planning."--Jacket

New directions in regional economic development : the role of entrepreneurship theory and methods, practice and policy( Book )

9 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The introduction of endogenous growth theory has led to new interest in the role of the entrepreneur as an agent driving technical change at the local regional level. This book examines theoretical and methodological issues surrounding the interface of the entrepreneur in regional growth dynamics on the one hand and on the other presents illuminating case studies. In total the book's contributions amplify understanding of such critical issues as the relationship between innovation and entrepreneurship, the entrepreneur's role in transforming knowledge into something economically useful, and knowledge commercialization with both conceptual and empirical contributions."--Résumé de l'éditeur
