"Applied Evolutionary Economics and Economic Geography" aims to further advance empirical methodologies in evolutionary economics, with a special emphasis on geography and firm location. It does so by bringing together a select group of leading scholars including economists, geographers and sociologists, all of whom share an interest in explaining the uneven distribution of economic activities in space and the historical processes that have produced these patterns. Methodological advances in three domains are examined in detail: demographic techniques, which allow for systematic analysis of the spatial evolution of industries; social network analysis providing new tools to analyse the geography of networks at different spatial levels; and spatial econometric techniques, which are used to understand the growth dynamics of cities and regions. The book also contains two case studies on the evolution of high-tech regions and a policy chapter on evolutionary planning of transportation networks. This book will be warmly welcomed by evolutionary economists, industrial organization scholars and researchers interested in policy science, the economics of innovation and economic geography.
