Growing Urban Economies : Innovation, Creativity, and Governance in Canadian City-Regions Hardback
Edited by David A. Wolfe, Meric S. Gertler
Part of the Innovation, Creativity, and Governance in Canadian City-regions series
Even in a globalizing, knowledge-based economy, cities remain engines of growth, innovation, and diversity.
Increasingly, they are also active participants in the creation of the social and political conditions necessary to create a thriving community.
The Innovation, Creativity, and Governance in Canadian City-Regions series is a focused analysis of how developments at the local and regional level affect these three key determinants of future prosperity.
Growing Urban Economies summarizes its conclusions in a single volume that presents an overview of the evidence and its implications. A rich and nuanced analysis of the interplay of social, political, and economic factors in thirteen Canadian city-regions, large and small, this collection integrates research focusing on innovation, creativity and talent-retention, and governance in order to understand the distinctive experience of each region.
A valuable cross-section of city-region development in a variety of circumstances, Growing Urban Economies offers important insights into the way in which local conditions affect urban economies around the world.
