Regional economic change in Europe: a neo-Schumpeterian vision

Gerrit J. Hospers

Research output: ThesisPhD Thesis - Research UT, graduation UT


In this era of ongoing globalization a coherent vision on Europe's changing geo-economy is more important than ever before. Drawing on the work of Schumpeter, Fourastié and Perroux, the book at hand offers a new and policy-oriented perspective on regional economic change in Europe.Conceptually, it develops a middle-range theory by extending Schumpeter's vision with a sectoral and spatial dimension. This neo-Schumpeterian framework is concretized by exploring fifty years of structural change in Sardinia, the Ruhrgebiet and the Öresund.
