Adjustment Costs and Long Run Spatial Agglomerations
We introduce knowledge spillovers as an externality in the production function of competitive Ãƒï¿½Ã¯Â¿Â½firms operating in a Ãƒï¿½Ã¯Â¿Â½nite spatial domain under adjustment costs. Spillovers are spatial as productive knowledge Ãƒï¿½Ã¯Â¿Â½flows more easily among firms located nearby. When knowledge spillovers are not internalized by Ãƒï¿½Ã¯Â¿Â½firms spatial agglomerations may emerge endogenously in a competitive equilibrium, however, they do not emerge at the steady state of the social optimum.
