"This book by Zoltan Acs explores the relationship between industrial innovation and economic growth at the regional level, and reaches conclusions as to why some regions grow but others decline. While the analysis draws on industrial organization, labor economics, regional science, geography and entrepreneurship, the book focuses on innovation and the growth of cities by the use of endogenous growth theory." "The author argues that industrial innovation is the driving force behind long-run regional growth, and explores the issues of how technology and entrepreneurship can foster and promote growth at the regional level." "With its multidisciplinary approach, Innovation and the Growth of Cities will be welcomed by academics and researchers alike in the areas of innovation and science, regional science and geography, entrepreneurship and evolutionary economics."--Jacket.

Entrepreneurship and globalization are two much-examined forces as we enter the new millennium--yet very little has been published on the intersection of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and the global economy. To close the gap, this volume delves into the intricate roles and consequences of such businesses on both global and domestic economies. The first part of the volume provides an overview of the phenomenon of globalization, arguing that entrepreneurial discovery and technological change lead to globalization, which in turn leads to further opportunity for entrepreneurial discovery--no less for SMEs than for multinational corporations. In part two, the essays examine the role of SMEs in the global economy and why they are thriving. Part three reviews the roles of SMEs and innovators and examines their roles in direct foreign investment. Part four explores the role of technological diversity and knowledge spillovers as a way to explain the superior innovative performance of SMEs. Part five looks at the role of SMEs in technology transfer. Finally, part six examines the theoretical and policy implications of the international activities of SMEs, suggesting that policies should aim to reduce the costs in international expansion for SMEs. This volume will provide the foundation for further study in SMEs and globalization. It will appeal to scholars and students in both international business and economics. Zoltan J.

Enterpreneurship, innovation and technological change by Zoltán J Ács ( Book )
2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 216 libraries worldwide
This survey links the prevalent theory from the entrepreneurship literature concerning opportunity recognition and exploitation to economic theory, in particular the model of the knowledge production function. The debate and evidence regarding the relationship between innovative activity and organizational context is examined. The role that the external knowledge context or what has become known as knowledge spillovers and geographic location plays in innovative activity is analyzed. Based on new theoretical models combined with compelling empirical evidence, the authors offer a reinterpretation of the role of entrepreneurship in innovative activity and technology.

Entrepreneurship, growth, and public policy by Kauffman-Max Planck Summit on Enterpreneurship Research and Policy ( Book )
4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 175 libraries worldwide
While the public policy community has turned to entrepreneurship to maintain, restore, or generate economic prosperity, the economics profession has been remarkably taciturn in providing guidance for public policy for understanding the links between entrepreneurship and economic growth as well as for framing and weighing policy issues and decisions. The purpose of this volume is to provide a lens through which public policy decisions involving entrepreneurship can be guided and analyzed. In particular, this volume provides insights from leading research concerning the links between entrepreneurship, innovation, and economic growth that shed light on implications for public policy. The book makes clear both how and why small firms and entrepreneurship have emerged as crucial to economic growth, employment, and competitiveness as well as the mandate for public policy in the entrepreneurial society.
