Abstract

With this work we try to present a linear model for Portugal based on the new economic geography. We built the model taking into account an analyse about the agglomeration process in Portugal, using the New Economic Geography models, in a linear way. We considered, yet, for this model, the complementarily of clustering models, associated with the New Economic Geography, and polarization associated with the Keynesian tradition.
