0 Reviews
This book is a collaborative effort by researchers from Japan, Italy, and the US which seeks to explore the question of why firms congregate in certain regions. The studies in the book present real examples of industrial clusters, adding anecdotal evidence to the emerging theory of economic geography by illustrating the centripetal and centrifugal forces that regulate the clustering process. The authors examine clusters in a diverse set of countries including China, Italy, Japan, Mexico, South Korea, the USA and Vietnam.
