Abstract

The goal of this project is the explanation of spatial distribution of investment in Russia during the transition to a market economy. The influence of agglomeration and investor expectations on investment in the real sector of the economy are analyzed. A theoretical model is constructed, which describes an increase in investment concentration. An empirical test of hypothesis is conducted. The results provide useful recommendations for regional investment policies.
