This seminar will analyze the evolution of the Blue Economy as one of the pivotal regional development paradigms. After a brief review of the Blue Economy, the talk will focus on the economic size and resilience of five established definitions of the Blue Economy across two geographical locations: Scotland (UK) and Michigan (USA). The work presented will analyze sector-level employment, labor productivity and Gross Value Added (GVA) data, and uses graphical representations to highlight the differences in conceptualizing the Blue Economy in ways that affect its weight and contribution to regional economies. Further, it analyses how each definition has fared in the post-2007/2011 crisis, assessing their resilience. Finally, a discussion of the emerging discourse around the Blue Economy by highlighting its regional character, and by problematizing the divergent definitions of the concept.
