Abstract

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 from the state, the mobility of households, pensions and tourism generate new service jobs and show 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 economic spaces are identified and mapped.
