This volume introduces theories and tools for local and regional economic development through an interdisciplinary approach. It describes the global world economy, discussing local and regional analysis within the globalized economic and social environment, including the globalization process, its impact on local and regional economies, the place of local and regional economies in the global environment, and the importance and need for local and regional economic analysis, as well as the regional economic development process and the regional endogenous growth theory and its evolution, the evolutionary regional economic development process, and a new evolutionary endogenous regional development model. Subsequent chapters address the governance, institutions, local leadership, and role of regional development agencies in the regional economic development process; conflicting issues in the process and developing a framework for conflict management; major local and regional development theories, including the location theory, growth pole theory, economic base theory, cumulative causation theory, and product/regional life cycle theory; the industrial cluster and agglomeration concepts and their characteristics, types, dimensions, and lifecycle; analytical models and techniques (shift-share analysis, location quotient, economic base model, input-output model, and data envelopment analysis); and a regional decision support model.
