From Keynesianism to the knowledge economy: the rise and fall of growth regimes

From Keynesianism to the knowledge economy: the rise and fall of growth regimes. Peter Hall, December 10, 2018, Paper, “This essay explores the evolution of postwar growth regimes, understood as the economic and social policies used by governments to pursue economic growth in the developed democracies. It charts movement in growth regimes from an era of modernization stretching from 1950 to 1975, through an era of liberalization running from 1980 to the late 1990s, to a subsequent era of knowledge-based growth. It argues that the capacities of democratic governments to pursue specific growth regimes depend, not only on economic circumstances, but also on evolving electoral conditions, marked especially by changes in the cleavage structures conditioning partisan electoral strategies. The essay concludes by exploring the implications of contemporary electoral politics for the development of growth regimes appropriate to a knowledge economy.Link

The role of industry-specific, occupation-specific, and location-specific knowledge in the growth and survival of new firms

The role of industry-specific, occupation-specific, and location-specific knowledge in the growth and survival of new firms. Edward Glaeser, June 23, 2018, Paper, “How do regions acquire the knowledge they need to diversify their economic activities? How does the migration of workers among firms and industries contribute to the diffusion of that knowledge? Here we measure the industry-, occupation-, and location-specific knowledge carried by workers from one establishment to the next, using a dataset summarizing the individual work history for an entire country. We study pioneer firms—firms operating in an industry that was not present in a region— because the success of pioneers is the basic unit of regional economic diversification.Link
