Simulating Wages and House Prices Using the NEG
The paper incorporates house prices within an NEG framework leading to the spatialdistributions of wages, prices and income. The model assumes that all expenditure goes tofirms under a monopolistic competition market structure, that labour efficiency units areappropriate, and that spatial equilibrium exists. The house price model coefficients areestimated outside the NEG model, allowing an econometric analysis of the significance ofrelevant covariates. The paper illustrates the methodology by estimating wages, income andprices for small administrative areas in Great Britain, and uses the model to simulate theeffects of an exogenous employment shock.
