The Relationship Between Labour Productivity in Manufacturing and Energy Sectors and the GDP Per Capita in International Benchmarking
Autorzy: Michał Paszkowski, Lidia Luchter
Strony: 7-21
Summary - read more..
Starting with the assumption, that rising per capita income, the sine qua non condition of economic development, comes primarily from industry, the paper deals with benchmarking countries on labour productivity measured in domains of industrial activity offering the best available comparability of physical output i.e. electricity. Productivity then is related to standard of living measured by the GDP per capita. The study focuses on the relation observed among the Central and Eastern European countries during their transformation towards market economy.
The Spatial Consequences of Globalisation in the European Brewing Industry
Autor: Maciej Huculak
Strony: 23-35
Summary - read more..
The author characterises spatial effects of an ongoing transformation of the European brewing industry identifying patterns and the spatial consequences visible at the scale of the continent. The rate of transformation in the industry is clearly related to the participation of global players in the process. As a result most of the processes specific for the functioning of the manufacturing industry in the global economy age can be easily shown.
Local and Regional Embeddedness of Foreign Industrial Investors in Poland
Autor: Bolesław Domański
Strony: 37-54
Summary - read more..
The author addresses the question of local and regional embeddedness of foreign industrial investors in Poland. It is analysed from the perspective of economic and social linkages developed by foreign-owned companies. Special emphasis is put on their supplier relationships as well as quantitative and qualitative impact on labour market. It is shown that the growing number of foreign investors becomes embedded in Polish regions and communities, at the same time making them integrated into global economy. The investors tend to enhance the capacity for sustained local and regional economic development, though the balance of positive and negative effects as well as the embeddedness of their activity differs markedly depending on industry, company strategy, type of investment and various place-specific characteristics.
Reducing Gas Pollution at Polish Public Power Utilities. The Development and Spatial Patterns
Autor: Lidia Luchter
Strony: 55-69
Summary - read more..
The abandoning of the centralistic organisation model in the Polish electricity generating industry and the introduction of stringent environmental standards triggered a process of power plant flue gas pollution control during 1990s. The author presents the scale and rate of the process, and identifies factors and conditions influencing its variations in terms of distribution and time. The author also identifies the relationships between the quality of fuel used in power plants, the production volume, scrubbing technology and the amount of pollution.
The Urban Rail Transport as an Element of the Urban Quality of Life in Poland
Autor: Arkadiusz Kołoś
Strony: 71-84
Summary - read more..
One half of Poland's urban traffic continues to be handled by public transport systems. The author looks at the various aspects of urban rail transport (URT) as important contributors to the standard and quality of urban life. These aspects include URT route accessibility, network utilisation, service frequency, capacity and operating speed.
The Conditions for Gaining Self-Government by Local Communities Based on the Example of Newly Emerged Municipalities in Upper Silesia (Poland)
Autor: Wojciech Jarczewski
Strony: 85-92
Summary - read more..
The author uses the Upper Silesian region to study the emergence of new units of self-government as boroughs spin-off from town municipalities and clutches of villages split up from the larger rural districts. All of the boroughs seeking promotion to their own self-government feature a similar set of historical, social and economic features helping them to start on the path to self-government. A strong local leadership is the key success factor; only the boroughs that had groups of local leaders managed to gain administrative independence. Also, the successful boroughs followed similar steps along the way from the emergence of the idea of independence to securing the PM's signature on the project documents.
The Change in the Rural Standard of Living During the Transformation Period in the Podkarpackie Province, Poland
Autor: Agnieszka Sobala-Gwosdz
Strony: 93-106
Summary - read more..
The author uses the Z-scores method to investigate standards of living in rural gminas of the Podkarpackie Province during 1990-2000. Ten years into the Poland's transformation period, the developmental gap separating rural and urban gminas is slightly smaller, but the existing differences between the lowest and highest standards of living remained. When combined with the increase in the standard of living in some dozen rural gminas it seems that the role of spatial differences tends to increase. The greatest improvement in the standard of living was recorded in suburban gminas of the region's largest cities and along its main transport axis, the E-40 road. The agricultural gminas located in the Przemyskie Foothills and peripheral areas in the northeast of the province have remained the most backward

Autor: Joanna Więcław-Michniewska
Strony: 117-130
Summary - read more..
In her paper the author discusses problems concerning life quality and standard of the urban population, on an example of Cracow suburbs. Valuation of those - in selected suburbs - was made by an analysis of the measurable objective indices defining an economic status of the discussed population. Aspects concerning the subjective valuation of the life quality, describing the social structure, were also used. A combination of both the objective (material) indices and the subjective (reflecting the feelings of interviewed people) let to obtain full image of the researched social groups and to define a degree of satisfaction of their material and spiritual needs.
