Services dominate the modern economy. This controversial and important book reviews research into the development and future of the service economy. Professor Illeris synthesises not only English language research on the nature and function of services, but also introduces the lesser-known but equally important work done on services by researchers in other languages which often reaches surprising and challenging conclusions. While the emphasis is on producer services in the western world, due consideration is also given to the role and significance of personal and household services which have been frequently ignored in the literature. The approach adopted is geographical and macro-economic and among the topics discussed are the nature and classification of service activities, the role and importance of services in the overall economy and the increasing importance of services in regional development and international trade. The overall theme of the book is how our society has been transformed into a service economy and what this implies for individuals, institutions and states as both producers and consumers of services. This is a key text for students and researchers of economics, economic geography, planning, regional science and applied social science as well as of interest to planners, consultants and managers in service industries and government.

From the Publisher:

A controversial and important book that reviews research into the development and future of the service economy. Much of the research has not previously been available in English. The emphasis is on the producer services in the economically developed part of the world, but household services are not discussed. The questions under scrutiny are primarily geographical and macro economic, such as the nature and classification of services, the role of services in the economy, how and why do services grow, qualifications in services, the role of the services in regional development, and international variation and trade in services. The broad perspective of how our societies transform into service economies is discussed.
