Publisher: Elgar, Edward Publishing, Inc.
Present political wisdom holds that a significant key to development can be inter-firm collaboration. In 17 articles, including three case studies, contributors examine economic network theory and its applications in cluster and network modeling, empirical analysis of clusters, and cluster policy analysis and strategies. Case studies include regional biotech partnerships in North Carolina and Sweden, foreign investment in the Qingdao Development Zones, and an emerging bio-instruments industry in Jena. Examples of other developments come from Europe, the UK, and the US in businesses ranging from financial services to sustainable industries. Annotation ©2005 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
