        The Booming Maritime Edge | The Power of Place

        This half hour video program features two case studies that focus on the geography and economics of East Asia. The first segment highlights the province of Guangdong in the Pearl River Delta and the many multinational corporations located there including Nike, the American athletic shoe company. The second segment covers the rapid economic growth and urbanization of Taiwan, an island country. One geographer sees Taiwan playing a role as an "interface region" between Western technology and Chinese business.
