Enterprise and Competitive Advantage in the Australian Context: A Spatial Econometric Perspective
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
Contemporary understanding of the evolution of the geography of uneven development is dominated by research derived from either the 'new' geographical economics or the new regionalism, typically in the context of either the European Union or North America. By way of contrast, we consider local economic performance in the Australian context. Building on Fingleton's work, we employ a spatial econometric modeling methodology to account for the role of both endogenous technological change and export orientation in determining local competitive advantage. The evidence suggests that competitiveness depends on both the indigenous characteristics of a local economy and its exposure to global competition.
