Abstract

L'agglomeration spatiale des firmes est un phenomene tres connu de l'economie geographique. Cet article propose une nouvelle explication a ce phenomene : les entreprises mettent en avant la localisation comme le moyen de signaler la qualite de biens nouveaux. Accepter la concurrence en se localisant au plus pres des entreprises existantes permet de montrer aux consommateurs la valeur des produits vendus. La polarisation geographique et par la meme une plus grande concurrence sert de faire valoir aux innovations.
