Explaining Cross-Country Productivity Differences in Retailing

David Lagakos

No 951, 2007 Meeting Papers from Society for Economic Dynamics

Abstract: rates of car ownership and low levels of income per square mile. I formalize this hypothesis in a spatial model in which the diffusion of modern retail stores is driven by auto ownership and household income. The idea that technology adoption is driven by the demand side appears promising for explaining productivity differences more broadly.
