Skill-Biased Share-Altering Technical Change in Spatial General Equilibrium
The paper consider the skill-biased Ã¢â‚¬Å“share-alteringÃ¢â‚¬Â technical change hypothesis in a spatial general equilibrium model where skilled and unskilled individual may exhibit different preferences for local amenities. A main novelty Ã¢â‚¬â€œboth for labour and urban economics- is that, under this hypothesis, skill-biased technical change can be readily represented by simple Cobb-Douglas production functions, rather than CES technologies. We then analyse the local labour markets equilibrium, where the adoption of new technologies may require an adequate proportion of skilled workers. Keywords: skill-biased technical change, share-altering technologies, local labour markets. JEL Classification Numbers: O33, R12, R23, J31.
