  • The Firesby Joe Flood

    Penguin Publishing Group 2010; US$ 16.00

    New York City, 1968.

    Just 10% of regions accounted for more than half of total employment creation in most OECD countries between 1998 and 2003. This means that national growth tends to be driven by the dynamism of a small number of regions. Policy makers need sound statistical information on the source of regional competitiveness, but such information is not always available.... more...
