This book examines the geography of economic development and variations in the degree to which globalization of production, consumption, and exchange has affected economic growth and regions' development status. As the world's regions become more highly integrated and interdependent through time, it is essential that we gain a basic understanding of the factors and forces which both influence regional economic change and determine future economic development potential. In so doing, we acknowledge that the effectiveness of regional development strategies and policies are, to a large extent, contingent upon our ability to find solutions to a complex set of global development problems.
