Concentrated economic power and Silicon Valley

published at : Property and finance, part 1

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



There are three perspectives to characterize the Silicon Valley. The Valley's success can be seen as a story about supremely independent entrepreneurs. It can also be seen as a full-fledged industrial district made up of a dense thicket of mostly small and medium-sized flexible specialists that cooperate and compete with one another. The third perspective (dominant tendency) is that the Valley is a world headquarters of global networks of big firms and their subcontractors, subject to concentration of power but decentralization of production.
