Agglomeration theory with heterogeneous agents

Kristian Behrens () and Frederic Robert-Nicoud

No 10184, CEPR Discussion Papers from C.E.P.R. Discussion Papers

Abstract: This chapter surveys recent developments in agglomeration theory within a unifying framework. We highlight how locational fundamentals, agglomeration economies, the spatial sorting of heterogeneous agents, and selection effects affect the size, productivity, composition, and inequality of cities, as well as their size distribution in the urban system.

Keywords: agglomeration; city-size distribution; heterogeneous agents; inequality; selection; sorting (search for similar items in EconPapers)
