  • The Life Cycle of Clustersby Dirk Fornahl; Robert Hassink

    Edward Elgar Publishing 2017; US$ 40.00

    One-size-fits-all cluster policies have been rightly criticized in the literature. One promising approach is to focus cluster policies on the specific needs of firms depending on the stage of development (emergence, growth, sustainment or decline) their cluster is in. In this highly insightful book, these stage-specific cluster policies are analysed... more...

  • Graduate Migration and Regional Developmentby Jonathan Corcoran; Alessandra Faggian

    Edward Elgar Publishing 2017; US$ 40.00

    This book aims to integrate and augment current state-of-the-art knowledge on graduate migration and its role in local economic development. Comprising the key scholars working in the field, it draws together an international series of case studies on graduate migration, a recognised critical component of the global pool of labour.

  • Geographies of Growthby Charlie Karlsson; Martin Andersson; Lina Bjerke

    Edward Elgar Publishing 2017; US$ 40.00

    Today we can observe an increasing spatial divide as some large urban regions and many more medium-sized and small regions face growing problems such as decreasing labour demand, increasing unemployment and an ageing population. In view of these trends, this book offers a better understanding of the general characteristics and specific drivers of the... more...

  • Time, Space and Capitalby Åke E. Andersson; David Emanuel Andersson

    Edward Elgar Publishing 2017; US$ 40.00

    In this challenging book, the authors demonstrate that economists tend to misunderstand capital. Frank Knight was an exception, as he argued that because all resources are more or less durable and have uncertain future uses they can consequently be classed as capital. Thus, capital rather than labor is the real source of creativity, innovation, and... more...

  • Entrepreneurial Neighbourhoodsby Maarten van Ham; Darja Reuschke; Reinout Kleinhans; Colin Mason; Stephen Syrett

    Edward Elgar Publishing 2017; US$ 40.00

    Despite the growing evidence on the importance of the neighbourhood, entrepreneurship studies have largely neglected the role of neighbourhoods. This book addresses the nexus between entrepreneurship, neighbourhoods and communities, confirming not only the importance of ‘the local’ in entrepreneurship, but also filling huge gaps in the... more...

  • Measuring Regional Specialisationby Katarzyna Kopczewska; Pawel Churski; Artur Ochojski; Adam Polko

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 119.45

    This book explores statistical models in regional specialization, presenting a brand new measure. It begins by reviewing existing indicators and models of regional specialization before outlining a newly created, spatially embedded model of specialization based on the spatial distribution of firms. It addresses the various applications of the model,... more...

  • The Black Social Economy in the Americasby Caroline Shenaz Hossein

    Palgrave Macmillan US 2017; US$ 119.45

    This pioneering book explores the meaning of the term “Black social economy,” a self-help sector that remains autonomous from the state and business sectors. With the Western Hemisphere’s ignoble history of enslavement and violence towards African peoples, and the strong anti-black racism that still pervades society, the African diaspora in the Americas... more...

  • The Nature of Economiesby Jane Jacobs

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2002; US$ 15.95

    From the revered author of the classic The Death and Life of Great American Cities comes a new book that will revolutionize the way we think about the economy. Starting from the premise that human beings "exist wholly within nature as part of natural order in every respect," Jane Jacobs has focused her singular eye on the natural world in order... more...

  • Creating Regional Wealth in the Innovation Economyby Jeff Saperstein; Daniel Rouach

    Pearson Education 2002; US$ 34.00

    Drawing on extensive new research through dozens of interviews with entrepreneurial champions in diverse sectors, Creating Regional Wealth in the Global Innovation Economy pinpoints the key reasons why some locations succeed in the quest to become centers of technology and innovation - and sustain their competitive advantages over time - while others... more...
