Technical change and agglomeration

Carl Gaigne and Stephane Riou ()

Economics Bulletin, 2007, vol. 18, issue 3, 1-5

Abstract: Although economic historians consider technical change to be a significant factor explaining the evolution of the spatial organization of an economy, economic geography still fails to address this important issue. By developing a simple two-region general equilibrium model under monopolistic competition, we show that agglomeration is triggered by technological progress shifting production towards more skill intensive techniques.
