The steady globalization of economic activity over the last few decades has intensified the assertion of the region as a critical locus of economic order and as a potent foundation of competitive advantage. This book is a wide-ranging exploration of the economic logic and political meaning of such developments. It presents the economic geography of the modern world as an emerging global mosaic of regional systems of production and exchange.
