L'économie résidentielle en Suisse: une approche par les emplois
AbstractWhat are the drivers of regional development in Switzerland? The residential economy renews the understanding of growth and development. Until now, attention is largely focused on jobs that export outside the region with the idea that other jobs will be generated by the expenditure of that income on the spot. Today, however, the importance of transfer income redistribution from the state, the mobility of households, pensions and tourism generates new service jobs and shows that this traditional approach is incomplete. The residential economy appears to be a new avenue to explore to analyze the diversity of local forms of development. The proposed contribution introduces different theories of the residential economy and delivers an initial characterization of its importance in Switzerland based on statistics of employment. Different types of space are identified and mapped from this approach.
