The impact of spatial and social qualities on the reproduction of local economic success: the case of the path dependent development of Gliwice
Wpływ cech przestrzennych i społecznych na odtwarzanie lokalnego sukcesu gospodarczego - historyczne uwarunkowania rozwoju Gliwic
Summary: The author discusses the reproduction of the localized economic success and its interdependencies with local social and spatial characteristics, using the example of Gliwice in the old industrial region of Upper Silesia. The development of the town over the last 200 years did not rely on the cumulative growth of previously dominant functions, but rather on a succession of dynamic new activities: the steel industry, corporate headquarters, research and higher education. It is shown that the rise of new functions was underlain by the local social qualities and spatial properties, as formed in earlier periods. These properties also facilitate substantial new manufacturing investment at present, including a GM factory, and the recent growth of specialist producer and consumer services in Gliwice in the 1990s.
