Description

Yusef, an economic advisor in the Development Research Group of the World Bank, presents work on the nature of industrial clusters and on measures that could help foster industrial clusters. International contributors from academia and the World Bank examine the experience of clusters, including policies employed to induce their formation, in Asia and the US. Their analysis results in a wealth of insights into the dynamics of clusters and helps to identify many of the conditions necessary for their formation. Case studies on Silicon Valley in the US and four clusters in Asia are presented. The book consists of revised papers originally prepared for the conference "ICT Industrial Clusters in Asia and the Problems in Japan," held in the City of Kitakyushu, Japan, in December 2005. It will be of interest to policy makers, urban planners, business people, and researchers. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com) Read More
