Tucson's Clustered Connections - Terminal Paper for Master's of Urban and Regional Planning at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University
- Analyzed the regional economic outcome of cluster policy in Tucson, Arizona. This paper argues that the selective success of Arizona's cluster policy occurred in a regional economy that was first primed in its industrial structure to produce small, entrepreneurial firms. The cluster working groups that were successful over the long-term were the ones that filled an unmet need for an associational format under which these small firms in regionally emerging industries could build the relational assets that are key contributing factors to economic growth.
