Abstract

The occurence of agglomerations raises several questions: How come that economic activity is agglomerated instead of evenly spread out across space? What implications do agglomerations have for welfare (earnings, employment, etc.) and economic policy? How do increased globalisation and integration affect the number, size, and localisation of industrial agglomerations?
