Agglomeration and Networks in Spatial Economies


  • Johansson, Börje
  • Quigley, John M.


We consider the parallel developments in the economics of agglomeration and the economics of networks. We explore the complentarities between the productivity benefits of agglomeration and those of network linkages, arguing that networks of actors dispersed over space may substitute for agglomerations of actors at a single point.
