About this product
- DescriptionTraditional building ecomics has primarily been concerned with issues around project appraisal and cost management techniques. On the other hand, modern construction ecomics has a wider focus with stronger links to mainstream ecomics, reflecting an increased interest in a range of theoretical issues in construction ecomics, both at the macro and micro level. In Modern Construction Ecomics: Theory and Application, a variety of approaches are used to present a coherent vision of synthesis between industry ecomics and project ecomics. Topics covered include: * developing construction ecomics as idustry ecomics * competition and barriers to entry in construction * invation in construction * theory testing in construction management research * collusion and corruption in the construction sector. Including contributions from academics in the UK, Sweden, Hong Kong, and Australia, this is a truly global review of a core issue for the construction industry worldwide. The result is a unique book that will push toward the development of a comprehensive theoretical framework of construction ecomics. This is a must-read for all serious students of construction ecomics, and all practitioners looking for a deeper understanding of their industry.
