Richard Baldwin, Rikard Forslid, Philippe Martin, Gianmarco Ottaviano, & Frederic Robert-Nicoud

Book Description
Chapter 1 [HTML] or [PDF format]

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"This book represents a major contribution to the timely topic of economic geography and public policies. Well written, it provides a comprehensive policy analysis of spatial economics and lucid coverage of recent theoretical development within New Economic Geography. Economic Geography and Public Policy is a new must for graduate students and scholars in international trade, regional development, and economic geography."--Masahisa Fujita, Kyoto Institute of Economic Research, coauthor of The Spatial Economy

"This book addresses a topic that ranks among the hottest in the economics profession and which has also drawn considerable policy interest. It contributes an integrated theory and methodology to understanding the impact that geographic space and location play in shaping economic performance, and draws out the most pressing policy implications from these insights. By integrating locational factors into previously standard economic models, it injects new insights, sometimes quite unexpected and paradoxical, into what had previously been standard results."--David Audretsch, Director, Institute for Development Strategies, Indiana University
