Abstract:

Drivers of economic change, particularly globalisation and technological advances, are not necessarily "flattening" the world economy. While firms can access factors of production from anywhere, local knowledge is still relevant. In the United States, most patent applications come from just a few regions: California contributed more than 22% of patents originating in the United States. In Japan, the Southern‐Kanto region accounted for nearly 49% of patent filings.
