Overman H. G., Rice P. and Venables A. J. Economic linkages across space, Regional Studies. A diagrammatic framework is developed to study the economic linkages between regions or cities. Hitherto, such linkages have not been a focus of the literature. The framework is used to analyse the impact of shocks that occur in one region (for example, productivity improvements or increases in housing supply) on other regions, highlighting the key adjustment mechanisms and their long-run implications for incomes, the cost of living, and the spatial distribution of population. The approach is linked to both the New Economic Geography and urban systems literatures and empirical studies are reviewed that quantify the key mechanisms that are identified. Spatial linkages Urban systems New Economic Geography Urban and regional policy [image omitted] Overman H. G., Rice P. et Venables A. J. Des maillons geographiques economiques, Regional Studies. On construit un cadre schematique afin d'etudier les maillons interregionaux ou interurbains economiques. Jusqu'ici, de tels maillons n'ont pas ete le point de mire de la documentation. On se sert de ce cadre pour analyser l'impact des chocs qui ont lieu dans une region (p.e. des ameliorations de la productivite ou des augmentations de l'offre de logement) sur d'autres regions, soulignant les mecanismes d'ajustement essentiels et leurs impacts de longue duree sur les revenus, le cout de la vie et la distribution geographique de la population. L'approche se voit lier a la fois a la documentation sur la Nouvelle geographie economique et les Systemes urbains, et fait la critique des etudes empiriques qui quantifient les mecanismes essentiels identifies. Maillons geographiques Systemes urbains Nouvelle geographie economique Politiques urbaine et regionale Overman H. G., Rice P. und Venables A. J. Wirtschaftliche Verknupfungen zwischen Raumen, Regional Studies. Wir entwickeln einen diagrammatischen Rahmen zur Untersuchung der wirtschaftlichen Verknupfungen zwischen Regionen oder Stadten. Bisher waren solche Verknupfungen kein Schwerpunkt der Literatur. Mit Hilfe dieses Rahmens analysieren wir die Auswirkungen von Schocks in einer Region (z. B. eine verbesserte Produktivitat oder ein erhohtes Wohnungsangebot) auf andere Regionen, wobei wir die wichtigsten Anpassungsmechanismen und ihre langfristigen Auswirkungen auf Einkommen, Lebenshaltungskosten und die raumliche Verteilung der Bevolkerung herausarbeiten. Unseren Ansatz verknupfen wir mit der Literatur der neuen Wirtschaftsgeografie und urbanen Systeme; ebenso werten wir empirische Studien aus, in denen die wichtigsten von uns identifizierten Mechanismen quantifiziert werden. Raumliche Verknupfungen Urbane Systeme Neue Wirtschaftsgeografie Stadt- und Regionalpolitik Overman H. G., Rice P. y Venables A. J. Vinculos economicos en el espacio, Regional Studies. Desarrollamos una estructura esquematica para estudiar los vinculos economicos entre regiones o ciudades. Hasta ahora no se habia prestado mucha atencion a estos vinculos en la literatura. Con ayuda de esta estructura analizamos las repercusiones de los choques que ocurren en una region (p. ej., mejoras de productividad o aumentos en la oferta de hogares) en otras regiones, destacando los mecanismos de ajuste principales y sus efectos a largo plazo para los ingresos, el coste de la vida y la distribucion espacial de la poblacion. Unimos nuestro planteamiento con las literaturas de la Nueva Geografia Economica y los Sistemas Urbanos y analizamos los estudios empiricos que cuantifican los mecanismos clave que hemos identificado. Vinculos espaciales Sistemas urbanos Nueva geografia economica Politica urbana y regional
