(p.63) 4 Knowledge as a Relational Resource
The Relational Economy

Harald Bathelt

Johannes Glückler

Oxford University Press

This chapter explains that economic processes fundamentally depend on the transformation of resources into goods and services. It applies the relational perspective to the conventional notion of resources as discrete materials with well-defined use. The chapter introduces a new perspective on how agents create and use resources through the application of knowledge in social relations. Additionally, it develops an explicit relational conception of knowledge that is applied to different economic and geographical contexts in subsequent parts of the book.

Keywords:   relational perspective, social relations, economic processes, geographical contexts, relational resources
