Pautas de localización de las nuevas empresas y flexibilidad territorial
AbstractWhy does the location of new firms differ according to the characteristics of the industry? What relation is there between the technologically dense base of firms and the urban environment in which they appear? Does the autonomy of new firms when deciding their location differ according to the characteristics of the industrial sector and the size of the establishment? This study approaches these questions in Spanish manufacturing between the years 1980 and 1994. It is assumed that new industrial establishments decide to locate themselves in a certain city, ruling out other alternative locations. The results obtained indicate that decisions on location differ according to the technological density of the industries and their life cycle.
