Core-Periphery Economic Linkage: A Measure of Spread and Possible Backwash Effects for the Washington Economy
AbstractMany questions regarding economic development should be viewed in a regional core-periphery framework. A core-periphery input-output model of the Washington state economy was constructed. The core region supplied the periphery with higher-order services while the periphery furnished the core with natural resource-based commodities. Weak backward linkages from major core industries to the periphery lead to rejection of the growth-pole theory tenet that core growth supports periphery growth. Economic growth in the periphery was felt more strongly in the core because periphery sectors with strong within-region effects generally had strong impacts in the core.
