About this product
- DescriptionNew Jersey has a long history of adapting to a changing ecomic climate. From its colonial origins to the present day, New Jersey's ecomy has continuously and successfully confronted the challenges and uncertainties of techlogical and demographic change, placing the state at the forefront of each national and global ecomic era. Based on James W. Hughes and Joseph J. Seneca's nearly three-decade-long Rutgers Regional Report series, New Jersey's Postsuburban Ecomy presents the issues confronting the state and brings to the forefront ideas for meeting these challenges. From the rural agricultural and natural resource based ecomy and lifestyle of the seventeenth century to today's postindustrial, suburban-dominated, automobile-dependent ecomy, the ecomic drivers which were considered to be an asset are w viewed by many to be the state's greatest disadvantage. On the brink of yet ather transformation, this one driven by a new techlogy and an internet based global ecomy, New Jersey will have to adapt itself yet again - this time to a postsuburban digital ecomy. Hughes and Seneca describe the forces that are w propelling the state into yet ather ecomic era. They do this in the context of historical ecomic transformations of New Jersey, setting out the techlogical, demographic, and transportation shifts that defined and drove them.
