The Benefits of Industrial Agglomerations in a Prolonged Economic Crisis
AbstractThe international economic crisis that started in late 2007 and perpetuated until 2011, has conducted to new interests in the connection between the impact of worldwide recession and the possible remedies offered by industrial agglomerations for contrasting this powerful virus that global economy is copying with. To shed a light on this question, industrial agglomerations permit companies to become more innovative and consequently more productive by developing unique knowledge and abilities difficult to be replicated. In this way, the agglomerations contribute to the competitive advantage of the areas where they are located, and this value chain seems to be similar even in the case of a prolonged economic recession. Therefore, the purpose of this paper is to explore the behavior of the firms inside industrial agglomerations in the context of an extended financial crisis, focusing on several cases from Europe and finally to examine in what proportion the benefits of agglomerations are crucial for a prompt recovery from this worldwide economic collapse.
