The competition for inward investment among regions and within and between nations is intense, and the promotional agencies concerned are increasingly innovative in their competitive strategies. This book examines the new competition for inward investment and, in particular, discusses the interconnections between localities that this creates. Two key dimensions of this are pursued, with examples from the EU, North America and the Far East.

First, the book deals with the new corporate investment dynamics such as time-based competition and the increasing significance of repeat investment. Second, the contributors explore the local and national institutional dynamics of increasingly creative efforts to attract mobile investments. These new corporate andinstitutional dynamics raise important issues regarding local and national democracy, and the sustainability of economic development.

The New Competition for Inward Investment is an inter-disciplinary book with an international focus. As such, the book will appeal to scholars of international business and especially those interested in the economic dimensions of globalization and the globalization debate. It will also be of interest to scholars and practitioners of regional science and regional economic development, including economic geographers and town planners.
