Desigualdade econômica regional e spillovers espaciais: evidências para o nordeste do Brasil
Objective of this study is to identify existence of spatial dependence between the capital microregions of the Northeast of Brazil, as well as the existence of spatial spillovers on the growth of GDP per capita between these cities, in 2000-2006. For this it was estimated an econometric model space, using a matrix of spatial weights which were considered as the capital of neighboring microregions including the travel time to the other is up to two hours, which had a sample of 166 geographical units of analysis. The results show that in the period analyzed, the economic performance of capital microregions of the Northeast was not affected by the performance of its neighbors, ie, there is the presence of spillovers between municipalities located in the sample.
