Paradoxically, the enduring competitive advantages in a global economy lie increasingly in local things—knowledge, relationships, and motivation that distant rivals cannot match. Now that companies can source capital, goods, information, and technology from around the world, often with the click of a mouse, much of the conventional wisdom about how companies and nations compete needs to be overhauled. In theory, more open global markets and faster transportation and communication should diminish the role of location in competition. After all, anything that can be efficiently sourced from a distance through global markets and corporate networks is available to any company and therefore is essentially nullified as a source of competitive advantage. But if location matters less, why, then, is it true that the odds of finding a world-class mutual-fund company in Boston are much higher than in most any other place?
Clusters and New Economics of Competition.pptx
Policymakers who wish to increase the growth of their economies and promote employment and the creation of well-paid jobs must understand the role played by place and geography and incorporate this understanding into their policy decisions. Universities who wish to commercialize their research, and businesses that wish to be more innovative, can also take advantage of place and geography. Clusters are geographic concentrations of interconnected businesses, suppliers, and associated institutions.
They can contain anchor institutions, small firms, start-ups, business incubators, and accelerators. The key driver in the formation of clusters or districts is that firms and researchers benefit from locating near each other, which is an extensively studied phenomenon in the economic development literature. The value placed on geographic proximity is of high importance given that innovation is a deeply human and creative endeavor that requires personal networks and trust that can be built more easily with diverse and talented people close together.
Clusters or innovation districts have been found to increase the innovation levels, efficiency, and productivity with which participating companies can compete, nationally and globally. There are many successful clusters in the United States and policymakers—universities and local leaders have contributed to that success.
All levels of government—local, state, and federal—have played a role in supporting and developing these clusters, and non-profit and philanthropic support has been valuable also.

The Adam Smith address: Location, clusters, and the" new" microeconomics of competition
Discussing the Concepts of Cluster and Industrial District. Abstract: The significance and popularity of the cluster and industrial district concepts claim for a deeper reflection. The analysis of one of the European Commission's EC policy documents shows inconsistencies that do not impede the formulation of normative statements. That way we answer the question of why and how cluster ideas have substituted industrial district principles and the consequences derived from that phenomenon. Keywords: Industrial districts; clusters; conceptual analysis; rhetorics; European Commission.

In the sophisticated industries that from the backbone of any advanced economy, a nation does not inherit but instead creates the most important factors of production such as skilled human resources or a scientific base. Moreover, the stock of factors that a nation enjoys at a particular time is less important than the art and efficiency with which it creates, upgrades, and deploys them in particular industries. The most important factors of production are those that involve sustained and heavy investment and are specialized. Basic factors, such as a pool of labor or local raw-material source, do not constitute an advantage in knowledge-intensive industries. Companies can access them easily through a global strategy or circumvent them through technology. To support competitive advantage, a factor must be highly specialized to an industrys particular needs a scientific institute specialized in optics, a pool of venture capital to fund software companies. These factors are more scarce, more difficult for foreign competitors to imitate and they require sustained investment to 3 create.
Clusters and innovation districts: Lessons from the United States experience
Today, the competition in many industries has internationalized. Due to the increasing globalization some firms are struggling to survive. In contrast to that, other firms are growing because of globalization.
Why Clusters Are Critical to Competition

Халохот пролетел пять полных витков спирали и замер. До Апельсинового сада оставалось всего двенадцать ступенек. ГЛАВА 101 Дэвид Беккер никогда не держал в руках оружия. Сейчас ему пришлось это сделать. Скрюченное тело Халохота темнело на тускло освещенной лестнице Гиральды. Беккер прижал дуло к виску убийцы и осторожно наклонился. Одно движение, и он выстрелит.
Наверняка Сьюзан уже начала волноваться. Уж не уехала ли она в Стоун-Мэнор без. Раздался сигнал, после которого надо было оставить сообщение. - Привет, это Дэвид. - Он замолчал, не зная, что сказать. Беккер терпеть не мог говорить с автоответчиком: только задумаешься, а тот уже отключился. - Прости, не мог позвонить раньше, - успел сказать .
Я никуда не спешу. Стратмор сокрушенно вздохнул и начал мерить шагами комнату.
Танкадо находился в Испании, а Испания - вотчина Халохота. Сорокадвухлетний португальский наемник был одним из лучших профессионалов, находящихся в его распоряжении. Он уже много лет работал на АНБ.
Их прикосновение было знакомым, но вызывало отвращение. Б нем не чувствовалось грубой силы Грега Хейла, скорее - жестокость отчаяния, внутренняя бездушная решительность. Сьюзан повернулась. Человек, попытавшийся ее удержать, выглядел растерянным и напуганным, такого лица у него она не видела. - Сьюзан, - умоляюще произнес Стратмор, не выпуская ее из рук.
Сьюзан кивнула. - То есть вы хотите сказать, Танкадо не волновало, что кто-то начнет разыскивать Северную Дакоту, потому что его имя и адрес защищены компанией ARA. - Верно. Сьюзан на секунду задумалась. - ARA обслуживает в основном американских клиентов.
