Ashgate, Jan 1, 2005 - Business & Economics - 336 pages
This book examines the question of the significance of proximate vs. more distant relationships for economic agents' performance and local economic development, and includes empirical studies from around the world. It suggests that the notions of diversity, innovativeness, maturity and multiple scales should be incorporated into the debates on the significance of proximity for economic performance.
