Investments and Consequences in Urbanization
AbstractTh e development of regions is not only a signifi cant mediator in generating economic eff ects, it is also a major factor in the absorption of new investment. Th e European economic space is historically constructed on an imagined ability for new investment to create an added value that can be incorporated into the concept of innovation. A replacement of old investment with new investment of equal effi ciency is both erroneous as well as having little economic eff ect. Regularities as to how a region accepts investment are complicated by the dynamics of time. Th ere is disproportion of eff ect given the investors? relatively short economic time horizon compared with the long-term time horizon of service life for a municipal utility. Much higher synergistic eff ects, however, reach the municipality (region) in the vicinity of the investment evaluation. However, if the initial investment is not followed by further investment activities, it comes about a misappropriation of investment eff ects by other investment entities being idle. Th e paper highlights the fact that by the appropriation of the economic eff ects there escape new benefi ts for the original investor. Th ey arise directly out of his reach and create value for the municipality (region) benefi t. If the reader can sense that this is a complex question, the objective of the paper is achieved. If the reader can anticipate aft er reading that the exploitation of investment eff ects is redistributed (so far) by an invisible genius loci, then he neither wasted time nor intellect. Th e indicators of regional development are a sensitive issue in the potential evaluation of any regional development and this also is not fully appreciated.
