Gateways to the global economy ( Book )
11 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 203 libraries worldwide
In the post-industrial network economy, international gateway regions are becoming increasingly important. These gateway regions are the nodes (defined as a city or city region) that act as saddle points between a region and the global economy. While gateway regions have existed ever since inter-regional trade was first practised, new non-trade networks, and the wider global economy, have made these regions more complex. This text includes discussions of infrastructure networks such as the Internet and air transport, as well as networking activities such as long-distance scientific co-operation, financial networks and direct investments. The contributors have expertise in fields such as regional economics, economic geography, institutional economics and business administration

Interregional migration : dynamic theory and comparative analysis by Wolfgang Weidlich( Book )
6 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 184 libraries worldwide
In part I of this book a dynamic migratory model connecting the microlevel of individual migration trends with the macrolevel of interregional migration is developed. Its derivation makes use of the master equation method. Applying a ranking regression analysis, the trend parameters of the model are correlated to regional socio-economic key factors. In part II the model is applied to interregional migration within the countries Federal Republic of Germany, Canada, France, Israel, Italy and Sweden. In part III a comparative analysis of the results is given. In part IV a selfcontained derivation of the master equation and of solutions relevant for the migratory system is given, the ranking regression analysis is exemplified and a computer program for the estimation of trendparameters is added
Knowledge and industrial organization by Åke E Andersson( Book )
10 editions published in 1989 in English and German and held by 183 libraries worldwide
This volume contains a selection of papers presented at an international symposium on research and development, industrial change and economic policy organized and hosted by the University of Karlstad, Viinnland, Sweden. Situated about halfway between Stockholm and Oslo, Karlstad stands on the River Klara, which reaches north into the mountains of Norway. Founded by King Charles IX of Sweden, whose statue stands in the city centre beside the river, the city celebrated its 400th anniversary in 1984. For many decades the wealth of Karlstad has been based on traditional industries such as iron, timber and paper, and throughout the province of Viinnland there are a considerable number of industrial communities which grew up around mines, ironworks, sawmills and papermills. Even the cultural structure of these communities is heavily marked by the industrial environment in which they developed. However, for over a decade now a major structural reorientation has been taking place and the old industrial structures have been disappearing. For various reasons the importance of large scale, manufacturing companies has declined and as a result of intense development work with new ideas, new entrepreneurs and new technology, we have seen the rapid rise of small companies. In this context, recent research has shown that universities playing an increasingly central role in regional development. Thus the continued development of the University of Karlstad is of significant regional and national interest. Although fairly small in an international perspective (approximately 4000 students) the university is expanding rapidly

The economics of disappearing distance ( Book )
7 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 149 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?"--Jacket
The Future of transportation and communication : visions and perspectives from Europe, Japan and the U.S.A. by Roland Thord( Book )
9 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 141 libraries worldwide
We all know that networks are fundamental prerequisites for prosperity and production. Transportation and communication are indispensible to society, they are the elements which bind all economic systems together. Without networks and communica tion all social and economic life will be reduced to isolated phenomena. Therefore, transportation can't be assessed in the same way as other services. A smoothly functioning system of communications is also a prerequistite for social and economic integration between separate geographical regions. The modernization of the infrastructure is therefore an urgent task and a precondition for carrying out the whole of Europe's ambitious political, economic and social agenda. Since the need for communication and transportation does not know any national borders, the functioning of the networks needs to be adopted to this new economic and political geography. Congestions of cities, highways, railroads, airways and tele communications must be tackled, if precious working, commuting and leisure time is not to be wasted and heavy burdens on the environment avoided. European traffic, is for example, expected to double within the next twenty years. In certain transport modes the growth is expected to be even faster - air passenger transport doubled in 10 years and goods transport on roads doubled in 15 years

The Cosmo-creative society : logistical networks in a dynamic economy by Åke E Andersson( Book )
8 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 99 libraries worldwide
Today, telecommunication systems are expanding and evolving at a remarkable rate, with the aid of fiber optics, satellites and comput erized switchboard systems. Airline systems are providing faster and more efficient networks for world-wide human transportation. Com puters are now generally accessible to virtually all industries and many households. But perhaps the most important factor is that education systems are expanding the knowledge base for city populations, thus resulting in increased efficiency in the use of computers, telecommuni cations and rapid transportation systems. The revolutionary age of logistical networks is upon lIS. Logistical networks are those systems which facilitate the movement of knowl edge, commodities, money, and people in association with thE; produc tion or consumption of goods and services. Logistical networks form a set of important infrastructure which serve as hard and soft means to sustain all kinds of movement, transactions and diffusion within and between global networks of cities. Major structural changes in the re gional and urban economy, culture and institutions are triggered by slow but steady changes in global logistical systems
European metropolitan housing markets by Åke E Andersson( Book )
20 editions published in 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 93 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
