Are knowledge-bases enough? A comparative study of the geography of knowledge sources in China (Great Beijing) and India (Pune)
Abstract: This paper focuses on the organization and geography of
interactions between firms and other organizations in two industries:
software and autoparts. In contrast to most recent literature in economic
geography that argues that industries differ in their knowledge bases and
that consequently different industries show different patterns of
local-global interactions, our results show stronger differences between
regions in the same industry than between industries in the same region,
thus pointing out to other factors explaining the geography of innovation
in that particular industry.
