Agglomeration and the Adjustment of the Spatial Economy

  • Combes, Pierre-Philippe
  • Duranton, Gilles
  • Overman, Henry G

We consider the literatures on urban systems and New Economic Geography to examine questions concerning agglomeration and how areas respond to shocks to the economic environment. We first propose a diagrammatic framework to compare the two approaches. We then use this framework to study a number of extensions and to consider several policy relevant issues.
