Abstract

[eng] Location of activities : a two-sectors model with transportation costs. P. Krugman is arguing that a reduction of manufactured goods transportation costs favors concentration of industrial activity. In an economy with two sectors - the « agricultural » one being characterized by perfect competition and positive transportation costs (they equal zero in P. Krugman's model) -, we show that tendancy to concentration vanishes when transportation costs reduce sufficiently. An important remaining problem is connected with variations of agents' relative utilities. [fre] Selon P. Krugman , dans une économie où coexistent deux secteurs, l'un en concurrence monopolistique, l'autre en concurrence parfaite, la réduction des coûts de transport des biens du premier secteur favorise la concentration géogra­phique des activités. Nous montrons que, s'il y a un coût de transport positif pour les biens du deuxième secteur, cette tendance à la concentration disparaît pour de fortes réductions des coûts de transport dans le premier secteur. Mais les enjeux portent aussi, alors, sur l'évolution du bien-être relatif des agents.
