Small Firms Contributions to Economic Regeneration

Synopsis

Small Firms Contributions to Economic Regeneration by Robert A. Blackburn

This edited volume comprises a selection of papers presented at the 17th National Small Firms' Policy and Research Conference. The chapters in Small Firms: Contributions to Economic Regeneration, bring together a broad picture of contemporary research and policy issues on SMEs. They include state of the art analyses of financial issues, strategic management, growth, local economies, quality issues, and the business support infrastructure. The contributions are written by experts in their field, including professional practitioners and academics, and represent a major contribution to our knowledge and contemporary debates. The book provides realistic, micro and macro, perspectives of the behaviour and contributions of SMEs in today's economy.
