Energy consumption for sustainable development has become a crucial issue in recent years. The anthropogenic effects of traditional energy sources (non-renewables) underscores the need for renewable energy and efforts to promote its adoption have comprised policy makers’ strategies to achieve sustainable development. At the same time, institutional...
Article
The impact of big box stores on existing retail systems has been subject to considerable contention. It is debatable whether midsized box stores have the same impact on local communities as that of supersized box stores. Additionally, when a box store increases significantly in size and extends the range and depth of goods and services that it offe...
Article
Health outcomes related to vegetable and fruit consumption are widely recognized in the literature. This study investigates how dietary intake is influenced by individual, social, and environmental factors in the Toronto Census Metropolitan Area. The analysis and findings are based on data from the Canadian Community Health Survey which provides se...
Article
City trees, and the ecosystems of which they are a part, provide important benefits to urban residents. In many cities across North America, suitable locations for the planting of trees – expansion of the urban forest – are mostly confined to privately owned land. Our primary motivation for conducting this study was to investigate whether aggregate...
Article
The HOPE VI program was created in 1992 as a tool for public housing authorities in the US to deconcentrate poverty in project-based public housing neighborhoods. As part of the process, thousands of public housing residents have been required to relocate. They have the option to move to temporary housing in another project unit, to leave the subsi...
Article
Inventing is an important prerequisite for industrial economies to remain technologically competitive. Yet it is not well known how inventive companies of domestic or foreign ownership can affect a nation's technological base and, ultimately, its spatial-economic system. The present study examines this relationship in Canada by investigating the pe...
Article
The Frostbelt–Sunbelt shift in the US, which is thought to have accelerated during the 1970s, corresponds with recent findings that invention and innovation in the Southern and Western parts of the country have come to rival the traditional manufacturing belt. Whether research and development (R&D), a key input to new technology, shows a similar pa...
Article
This paper explores the overall efficacy of using trademark data as an economic indicator. The paper posits that trademarks - like other measures of innovation and technology production, such as the patent or R&D expenditures - can be used as an effective indicator of regional economic conditions. Yet, trademarks are distinct in that they are marke...
Article
The new economy hypothesis identifies the southern and western parts of the United States as important source points for industrial creativity that can rival the northeast. This study shows that this viewpoint, based on invention and innovation, is warranted. Regional technology production in the country is being helped by the presence of professio...
Chapter
There is greater awareness among scholars that innovative change is vital to the economic progress of firms and regions. While such change has previously been attributed to large companies (Freeman 1971, 1974), small firms have in fact developed half the new technology in several countries (Acs and Audretsch 1988). In this study, such firms are tho...

The new economy hypothesis identifies the southern and western parts of the United States as important source points for industrial creativity that can rival the northeast. This study shows that this viewpoint, based on patent activity, is warranted. Regional technology production in the country is being helped by the presence of professional, skil...
Article
This study incorporates patent data and industrial directory information to help reveal the major characteristics of Canada's foreign-owned companies and the geography of their patented inventions from 1975 to 1990. Such companies are distinct in that they are often large, have high volumes of sales, produce unusually high numbers of process invent...
Article
While inventive activity is necessary for industrial economies to progress, little is known about the types of enterprises inventing in Canada. The present study examines a typology of Canadian inventive enterprises at the national, subnational, and urban levels and the types of inventions developed in these areas from 1975 to 1989. Canadian patent...
Article
It seems that regional economic growth is often associated with the technological progress of large rather than small firms. The present study examines the typology and technological contributions of small Canadian inventive firms. The results show that such firms developed one-quarter of Canada's firm inventions in 1989. Further, unlike their larg...
Article
Canadian urban and regional patent and trademark data was analysed between 1881 and 1986 in an attempt to distinguish spatial inventive patterns in Canada over time. Inventive activity, as a pre—condition for economic development, is a viable indicator for predicting future economic growth in an inventive spatial economy. As such, it will be possib...
