Oxford University Press

Offers an analytical framework for evaluating the implications of recent economic events on the spatial distribution of economic activities, and of the role played by multinational enterprises (MNEs) and cross‐border coalitions of firms on the international and intranational division of labour. In particular, it is concerned with the parallel, yet apparently antithetical, forces towards the geographical dispersion of asset‐augmenting and asset‐exploiting activities, and the concentration of such activities in limited spatial areas—what has been referred to as the paradox of ‘sticky places within slippery space’.

Keywords:   division of labour, economic activity, geographical distribution, globalization, knowledge‐based economy, multinational enterprises, regional distribution, spatial distribution
