Desarrollo regional en la economía del conocimiento


  • Palacios-Sommer, Octavio A.

    (Instituto Politécnico Nacional.)


Diversos autores, incluido Joseph Stiglitz, hablan de la necesidad de las regiones rezagadas de incorporarse a la economía del conocimiento como salida a sus dificultades. Sin embargo, el término: “economía del conocimiento” es vago en su conceptualización, así que intentaremos ver a qué se refiere y su impacto a nivel de las regiones integrantes de un país. La presente nota es una discusión sobr e enfoques teóricos al respecto/ Various authors, including Joseph Stiglitz, say that underdeveloped regions need to join the knowledge economy in order to overcome their backwardness. Yet, the concept of “knowledge economy” is vague in its conceptualisation, thus we will try to see to what do these authors refer to and its impact on analysis and policy at the subnational regional level. The present document is exclusively a theoretical discussion paper
