Example text

Fortunately the vibrancy of endogenous growth theory as developed over the last 3 decades offers new opportunities for theories of regional growth. As seen in the copious literature on US regional economic development, its emphases on knowledge, knowledge spillover, entrepreneurship, technological innovation, leadership, institutions and entrepreneurship open a new window for empirical research to investigate regional economic development and growth. For example, in that literature, investigations into the role of leadership for regional economic development were not based upon a traditional hierarchical authority structure but rather upon notions of mutual trust and cooperation among stakeholders (Gray, 1989; Judd and Parkinson, 1990; Fosler, 1992).

22 Agglomeration, clusters and entrepreneurship In both of these exploratory applications of the model framework, the dependent variable measure of endogenous regional employment growth was the regional or differential shift component across all industry sectors derived from a shift-­share analysis of employment change over a specified period of time standardized by the size of the regional labor force. Both studies employed a standard OLS technique to estimate the model of regional endogenous growth.

Population change was seen to have had a greater impact on the endogenous regional growth of the medium-­size MSAs than was the case for the large-­size MSAs, while for the small-­size MSAs, there was a negative effect on their endogenous regional employment growth performance. That finding implies that agglomeration economies might have been an important element in the generation of endogenous regional employment growth, a finding that is consistent with those in the general literature on regional economic ­development and growth.
