European metropolitan housing markets by Åke E Andersson( file )
14 editions published in 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 418 libraries worldwide
This book provides a comprehensive analysis of housing theory and policy with a focus on metropolitan regions. The results are based on case studies of twelve European metropolitan regions, including expert panels organized in each. Using an approach from the field of industrial economics, the analysis is divided into the three related stages "structure," "conduct" and "performance." The essential idea is that the structure of a market, defined by market conditions, market growth, forms of competition and control, influences the economic behavior of both companies and households. The effects of this behavior can be observed in the development of prices; exchanged, constructed and maintained housing quantities; location patterns and choice of space. The contributions of this volume reveal significant differences in housing policies between European countries, while at the same time showing that policy effects are well in line with expectations based on traditional housing theory

Government for the future : unification, fragmentation, and regionalism ( Book )
12 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in English and held by 229 libraries worldwide
The aim of this volume is to encourage comparative explorations of the links between economic regionalism and government behaviour. At present, the relation between government and the economy is in a state of flux. In the old developed world, supranational organizations such as the EU and the WTO, are exerting more influence over economic life. Simultaneously, regional governments have emerged to provide public services to local populations. In some European countries, economic decision making is no longer in the power of the nation state, but has been transfered to international and local organizations. The papers in this volume have been contributed by a broad range of policy makers, journalists, and academics. Theories of the public sector are reviewed, restructured and extended, in order to cover the new spatial and dynamic situation. The volume provides historical and institutional perspectives on the public sector, and presents empirical case studies of the public sectors in Sweden, USA, Belgium, Malaysia, England and Singapore

Mobility is acentral and fundamental feature of human values. The focus of this book is to analyze and structure the future development of transportation and communication and to highlight their significance for society, economy and for the people and their environment.

The economics of disappearing distance ( Book )
8 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 143 libraries worldwide
"This book focuses on the role of tangible and intangible networks that affect spatial interdependencies in economic and social life. Interaction across geographical networks, in urban regions and between regions. Some of these new networks embed new technologies for communication, economic decisions and governance in such a way that the role of distance may be reduced. For certain types of interaction these changes seem to bring about a globalization of markets as well as social life in general. Hence the question, is distance disappearing? Moreover can we observe new forms of the distance phenomenon? Is distance becoming more important in the exchange of knowledge and ideas?"--BOOK JACKET

7 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 98 libraries worldwide
This book describes the nature and extent of the current revolutionary age of logistical networks, which is transforming society at a rapid rate. Many of the major structural changes underway are triggered by slow but steady changes in global logistical systems. Methods of dynamic analysis, especially synergetics, are essential for a proper understanding of the qualitative changes involved. These methods are described in the book. The role of creative world cities is also portrayed as a fundamental one. In this context, the Osaka Bay Area is expected to play a key role as a new symbiotic centre for different cultures of the Orient and the Occident. The book contains contributions of twenty prominent scientists from Japan, Europe and the USA
