Innovation, Entrepreneurship, Geography and Growth provides a timely, accessible review of our understanding of the complex links between innovation, entrepreneurship, geography and growth, and the ways in which they drive economic development. Contributions from leading experts in the field take a variety of theoretical, empirical and institutional angles, and importantly, they each operate at the interface between at least two of these key aspects. The chapters are organized to reflect the shifts in our understanding of these relationships, which initially operated at the interface between micro and macroeconomic theoretical models; they were then developed econometrically using aggregate sectoral data, and have since rapidly been extended through the use of microeconometric and survey data to examine more disaggregated geographical and institutional aspects. The result is a thorough roadmap of the range of issues addressed by research at the interface between these various aspects. The book also provides a reflection of the developments in our understanding of these relationships, and a discussion of the most profitable ways forward for enhancing our understanding of these issues in the future.
