Regional economic development : analysis and planning strategy by R. J Stimson( Book )

34 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Regional economic development has attracted the interest of economists, geographers, planners and regional scientists for a long time. And, of course, it is a field that has developed a large practitioner cohort in government and business agencies from the national down to the state and local levels. In planning for cities and regions, both large and small, economic development issues now tend to be integrated into strategic planning processes. For at least the last 50 years, scholars from various disciplines have theorised about the nature of regional economic development, developing a range of models seeking to explain the process of regional economic development, and why it is that regions vary so much in their economic structure and performance and how these aspects of a region can change dramatically over time. Regional scientists in particular have developed a comprehensive tool-kit of methodologies to measure and monitor regional economic characteristics such as industry sectors, employment, income, value of production, investment, and the like, using both quantitative and qualitative methods of analysis, and focusing on both static and dynamic analysis. The 'father of regional science', Walter lsard, was the first to put together a comprehensive volume on techniques of regional analysis (Isard 1960), and since then a huge literature has emerged, including the many titles in the series published by Springer in which this book is published

Telecommunications, transportation, and location by Kenneth Button( Book )

8 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 182 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
Barriers to sustainable transport : institutions, regulation and sustainability by Clay Aiken( Book )

21 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The complexity of transportation systems and their negative social and environmental externalities, are today at the centre of attention. This book focuses on the impacts of institutions and regulatory systems on transport systems and travel behaviour. While institutions appear to play an important role in the economic success of many countries, this book considers the extent to which they also support sustainable development. Written by leading academics from around the world, the book gives an international perspective on the role of institutions and regulations regarding national transport policy, local sustainable transport, international transport and freight transport."--Provided by publisher
Regional policies and comparative advantage( Book )

9 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This title analyzes the conception of economic development in modern regions, which has gone through a fundamental change since the early 1980s. Regions are today increasingly looked upon as independant market places that are connected via interregional and international trade and not as administrative units embodied in a national state. Two complementary theoretical frameworks explain the specialization of economic activity at the regional level. The traditional approach assumes that the comparative advantages of regions depend upon differences in the supply of lasting resources. In contrast the newer complementary framework called the "new economic georgraphy", assumes that the dynamic interaction between geographical market potentials and rational firms in its own way creates the comparative advantage of regions. The book examines the policy implications of the complementarity of the competing views in a variety of geographic and functional contexts
Intelligent transport systems : cases and policies( Book )

Information communication technology and economic development : learning from the Indian experience by Tojo Joseph Thatchenkery( Book )

13 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 160 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 )

8 editions published in 2001 in English and German and held by 157 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

The emerging digital economy : entrepreneurship, clusters, and policy by B Johansson( Book )

21 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The technology dynamics of the digital age continue to impact where industries and firms locate and cluster geographically. Some of the impacts and structural patterns are consistent with the old or Fordist economic era; some are not. Thus, the contributions provide a balanced view of the "New Economy" or "Digital Economy" perspective and through new analyses illustrate where dynamics seem to be emerging and where more traditional patterns seem to be holding. The book's contributions are based on analyses in specific regions in different parts of the world and are informed by empirical analysis. The volume is more than just another book on the digital economy based only on interpretive analysis. Consequently, the reader will gain considerable new insight based on a fact based foundation. A synthesis is provided that places the contributions in a broader frame. Policy implications are examined
Public policy in an entrepreneurial economy : creating the conditions for business growth by Zoltán J Ács( Book )

18 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 144 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. 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
Leadership and institutions in regional endogenous development by R. J Stimson( Book )

Entrepreneurship and economic growth in China( Book )

10 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 131 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 China drive economic growth like it does in other more market-oriented economies? What is entrepreneurship in China like? What is its history, nature, environment, and what are some of the underlying diversities or challenges it is facing? Assuming entrepreneurship in China is important to economic growth, how can public policy help to enhance the entrepreneurship milieu in China? Finally, based on the empirical findings and potential policy implications, future directions of investigation are suggested

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

7 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 111 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
Drivers of innovation, entrepreneurship and regional dynamics by Karima Kourtit( Book )

14 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 31 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
