Everything in Its Place

Entrepreneurship and the Strategic Management of Cities, Regions, and States

David B. Audretsch

  • Argues that the economic performance of places matters just as much as firms; cities, regions, and states need to take responsibility for their own economic performance by strategically managing what is happening in their place
  • Proposes creating a new academic field analogous to the field of strategic management in business schools—-the strategic management of places, which encompasses cities, regions and states
  • Provides a framework for guiding and informing policy makers, businesses, non-profit organizations, universities, private residents, and others mandated and concerned with the economic performance of their place
