Economic Gardening: What it is and what it does for the generation of jobs and economic growth

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference paperChapter

Abstract

In this chapter, we examine the nature of EG and how it offers a tool for policy makers seeking to foster economic growth and employment creation. First, we discuss the historical origins, nature and context of EG as an economic development strategy. Next, we examine the underlying nature of EG and then briefly compare EG with other approaches to economic growth including national innovation systems and entrepreneurial ecosystems. In the conclusion, we provide a series of implications for further research, policy and practice.
