    Ke S. and Feser E. Count on the growth-pole strategy for regional economic growth? Spread-backwash effects in Greater Central China. Regional Studies. This paper investigates spread-backwash effects associated with non-agricultural gross domestic product and employment growth across 922 cities and counties in Central China between 2000 and 2005. Simultaneous equation estimates find mixed spread-backwash effects from prefecture and higher-level cities to comparable or lower-level cities and counties. Spread effects of gross domestic product and employment growths are also indicated between county-level cities. However, county-level cities exerted backwash effects on rural counties. The paper discusses the implications of these findings in relation to the construction of urban economic growth zones in Central China as an important strategy of Central Rise.

Les effets de repartition et de redisribution en Chine centrale. Regional Studies. Cet article cherche a examiner les effets de repartition et de redistribution lies au PIB et a la croissance de l'emploi non-agricole a travers 922 grandes villes et comtes en Chine centrale de l'an 2000 jusqu'a 2005. Il resulte des estimations provenant des equations simultanees des effets de repartition et de redistribution mitiges dans les prefectures et plus grandes les villes jusqu'aux villes comparables ou aux villes et comtes plus petits. Les effets de repartition de la hausse du PIB et de l'emploi sont aussi indiques pour ce qui est des villes situees aux comtes. Cependant, les villes situees aux comtes ont eu des effets de redistribution sur les comtes ruraux. Cet article discute des implications de ces resultats par rapport a la construction des zones urbaines, economiques de croissance en Chine centrale comme une importante strategie de la Vague centrale.

Ausbreitungs- und Entzugseffekte in Zentralchina. Regional Studies. In diesem Beitrag untersuchen wir die Ausbreitungs- und Entzugseffekte durch nicht landwirtschaftliches BIP- und Beschaftigungswachstum in 922 Stadten und Bezirken von Zentralchina zwischen 2000 und 2005. Durch simultane Gleichungsschatzungen stellen wir gemischte Ausbreitungs- und Entzugseffekte von Stadten auf Prafektur- und hoherer Ebene hin zu Stadten und Bezirken auf vergleichbarer oder niedrigerer Ebene fest. Die Ausbreitungseffekte des BIP- und Beschaftigungswachstums waren auch innerhalb der Stadte auf Bezirksebene zu verzeichnen. Allerdings ubten die Stadte auf Bezirksebene einen Entzugseffekt auf die landlichen Bezirke aus. In diesem Beitrag werden die Auswirkungen dieser Ergebnisse im Hinblick auf die Einrichtung urbaner Wirtschaftswachstumszonen in Zentralchina als wichtige Strategie fur den Aufstieg Zentralchinas erortert.

Efectos de dispersion y regresion en China central. Regional Studies. En este articulo investigamos los efectos de dispersion y regresion asociados al PIB no agricola y el crecimiento de empleo en 922 ciudades y distritos de China central entre 2000 y 2005. En los calculos de ecuacion simultanea observamos efectos combinados de dispersion y regresion desde ciudades a un nivel de prefectura o mas alto hacia ciudades y distritos a un nivel comparable o mas bajo. Los efectos de dispersion del PIB y crecimientos de empleo tambien se observan entre las ciudades a nivel de distrito. Sin embargo, las ciudades a nivel de distrito ejercieron efectos de regresion frente a los distritos rurales. En este articulo presentamos las implicaciones de estos resultados con relacion a la construccion de las zonas urbanas con crecimiento economico en China central como una importante estrategia para el auge de China central.
