Entrepreneurship and Global Competitiveness in Regional Economies Determinants and Policy Implications

by Sherry Hoskinson

Part of the Advances in the Study of Entrepreneurship, Innovation & Economic Growth Series

Entrepreneurship and Global Competitiveness in Regional Economies Determinants and Policy Implications Synopsis

This volume, comprised of authors from the U.S., Canada, Africa, and Europe, centers on the development, transformation, and role of geographic /regional economies-- specifically in the globalized, post-2009 era. The authors address topics that every region must consider in responding to idea age, globally competitive, regionally driven economies. The volume builds on a large body of scholarship specific to regional economic development and geography by providing a much needed post-2009 perspective on regional economic environments and activities. Among the topics addressed are the emergence and boundaries of new economic geographies; the actors, characteristics, and functions of regional innovation systems as well as the opportunities and challenges associated with region-specific cultural and environmental interactions. It also examines the relationship of regional economies to diminishing country based economies and the critical relationship to globalization.
