ABSTRACTThis paper explores how distributed and relational forms of place-based leadership can be facilitated in environments with constrained local governance capabilities. It is based on an in-depth case study of a university-hosted collaborative platform situated in a city/regional institutional landscape marked by limited local devolution and public sector austerity. The research contributes to a fuller understanding of place-based leadership by analyzing how actors can mobilize interpretive...

ABSTRACTA recent boost in spending on the public infrastructure across India raises the question: How does the property sector react to massive infrastructure construction? The answer has significant policy relevance. This paper uses panel data across seven major Indian cities, spanning seven years from 2008 to 2014, to ascertain the short- and long-run impacts of infrastructure attributes on property values and rents. The study finds that increases in the percentage of public infrastructure spe...

ABSTRACTThis paper analyzes the process of related diversification at the regional level in two emerging countries: Brazil and Mexico. It claims that apart from regional available capabilities, capabilities coming from abroad in the form of imports may play an important role in the development of new products. In this sense, it proposes a new index to measure the impact of imports on the process of product diversification. The empirical analysis confirms that: the process of productive diversifi...

ABSTRACTDespite regional variation in fertility, rural–urban differences in the realization of fertility intentions have not been addressed in previous research. This paper analyzes the realization with data from 11 European countries, employing binomial and multinomial logistic regression models, decomposition analyses, and examining the role of contextual factors. The results demonstrate that realization is lower in urban than in rural regions. In cities, postponement of childbearing is much m...

ABSTRACTAdvocates of rural innovation policy argue that understanding innovation through the eyes of local dwellers offers an alternative to theorizations focusing on proximity and clustering. The paper furthers this agenda, suggesting that heterogeneity within rural communities, which is the outcome of differential meanings assigned to place by entrepreneurs with distinct migratory experiences, influences innovation. Specifically, it produces an innovation basis broader than expected given the ...

ABSTRACTThis paper argues that the shift from a top-down coordination of governments’ policies for the economies of cities towards the bottom-up self-organization of cities is not necessarily supported by appropriately competent local economic management capabilities and resources. In Scotland just before the advent of City Deals, various constraints in policy-making logic chains, data availability, accounting focus and planning coordination were found that continuously limit the efforts of citi...

ABSTRACTThis paper combines evolutionary game theory and input–output analysis to assess firms’ strategic location choice. To evaluate the model, firms competed in the automotive sector of Mercosur. To decide where to locate, the following exogenous factors were considered: potential market; local productive interdependence; tax incentive; and macroeconomic stability. Firms assigned weights to these factors in their location decision. It was found that competing in a market where there is tax ex...

ABSTRACTSuperstar cities with high-paying creative-class jobs, venture capital, and innovation are thought to be more unequal. We analyze mixing in neighbourhoods by income, education and occupation, relating this intra-urban measure with regional productivity indicators. Using non-overlapping census units and a machine-learning estimation technique that iterates over all combinations of economic, business, housing and cultural indicators, we identify ‘ingredients’ associated with economically a...
