Growth pole theory and strategy reconsidered: domination, linkages, and distribution With Karen R. Polenske The contrasting views of growth pole and dependency theorists and of those analysts proposing selected alternative strategies of development have been presented in terms of three critical issues: domination, linkages, and distribution.

Endogenous growth theory holds that economic growth is primarily the result of endogenous and not external forces. Endogenous growth theory holds that investment in human capital, innovation, and knowledge are significant contributors to economic theory also focuses on positive externalities and spillover effects of a knowledge-based economy which will lead to economic.

Growth Poles Theory. The central idea of the growth poles theory is that economic development, or growth, is not uniform over an entire region, but instead takes place around a specific pole (or cluster).

This is followed by a discussion on regional policies with a clear growth-center element in Scotland, Ireland, and France. The pivotal assumption behind this book is that research should and can lead to general statements about economic development.

As a result, scholars of economics and public finance, public administration, political science, urban studies, policy studies, and development studies will appreciate this invaluable resource.

At a time of extraordinary challenges confronting the world, this book analyses some of the profound changes occurring in the development of cities and regions.
