“Sticky places in slippery space” is one of the best-known phrases from the literature on economic geography. The “slippery space” is the globalised world of highly mobile capital, labour and technology. The “sticky places” are the successful regions in which these factors agglomerate. This book is, inter alia, an analysis of how Ireland became sticky over the course of the 1990s.
