This book focuses on an important and growing policy question: how to build sustainable regional economies. In order to address this question, Jennifer Clark puts forward the notion of working regions: places where research and design functions (regional innovation systems) and production networks (industrial districts) successfully overlap, producing both a specialized regional labor market and a potential policy model for regional resilience.
