About this product
- DescriptionWhy do some cities grow ecomically while others decline? Why do some show sustained ecomic performance while others cycle up and down? In Keys to the City, Michael Storper, one of the world's leading ecomic geographers, looks at why we should consider ecomic development issues within a regional context--at the level of the city-region--and why city ecomies develop unequally. Storper identifies four contexts that shape urban ecomic development: ecomic, institutional, invational and interactional, and political. The book explores how these contexts operate and how they interact, leading to developmental success in some regions and failure in others. Demonstrating that the global ecomy is increasingly driven by its major cities, the keys to the city are the keys to global development. In his conclusion, Storper specifies eight rules of ecomic development targeted at policymakers. Keys to the City explains why ecomists, sociologists, and political scientists should take geography seriously.
