Cet article se propose d’estimer les économies d’agglomération des activités de services supérieurs au sein du cluster financier luxembourgeois. Le modèle empirique utilisé, inspiré de celui de Midelfart-Knarvik et Steen (1999), fait notamment apparaître l’existence de différents effets externes pécuniaires et technologiques entre le secteur financier et les branches de services aux entreprises et informatiques. Abstract: In this paper, we estimate agglomeration effects which arise in the Luxembourg banking and services industries. The empirical model we use is inspired from Midelfart-Knarvik and Steen (1999). Empirical evidence of technological and pecuniary externalities is found between the financial industry and the computer and business services.
