Worlds Apart? Engaging with the "World Development Report 2009: Reshaping Economic Geography"

Listed author(s):
  • Jamie Peck
  • Eric Sheppard

Introducing a roundtable discussion of the World Bank's "World Development Report 2009": "Reshaping Economic Geography", this article contextualizes the report in intellectual and political terms. It reflects on the lost opportunities for, and potential limits of, engagement between the style of New Economic Geography espoused by the World Bank and the pluralist heterodoxy of economic geography "proper," before briefly previewing the commentaries from Gillian Hart, Victoria Lawson, and Andrés Rodríguez-Pose and the response from World Bank economists Uwe Deichmann, Indermit Gill, and Chor Ching Goh.
