Abstract

Brueckner et alii (1999) have explained urban population pattern through amenities distribution. Based on their model, this paper introduces a productive sector and helps understand employment suburbanization in a new way. Considering how amenities are valued, the 'people follow jobs' vs 'jobs follow people' case is discussed for CBD and hogh-brawn services firms. If they favour natural amenities, they might leave the historical center. A big constraint against that move is that the firm wants to keep its employees who may all live around the center. Despite conventionnal centripetal forces, they can settle in the suburbs before the households. People may than follow the firm in the suburbs.
