Reshaping Economic Geography in East Asia
Reshaping Economic Geography in East Asia, a companion volume to the World Development Report 2009, brings together noted scholars to address the spatial distribution of economic growth in Asia. It reveals how the new economic geography is reshaping development objectives: from initiatives to foster growth via enhanced agglomeration and connectivity to the world economy, to programs that channel resources to lagging regions. · Huang, Yukon and Allesandro Magnoli Bocchi, ed. · xxxi, 369 p.; 28 cm.
