Abstract

The United States is the world leader economically and technologicallyand this position can be attributed to the Silicon Valley cluster in California. Globally, Silicon Valley is the generally accepted model for a high-tech cluster and is the center for technology and innovation. In comparing Silicon Valley with another cluster in the United States, Route 128, I have developed a model for a successful cluster. This model can then be utilized as a tool for comparison between other clusters internationally. In order to address the outcome of globalization (global convergence or divergence) I have studied the most important and advanced clusters in North America, the European Union, and Asia.
