''Technical change and agglomeration''
( 2007, Vol. 18 No.3 )
Although economic historians consider technical change to be a significant factor explaining the evolution of the spatial organization of an economy, economic geography still fails to address this important issue. By developing a simple two-region general equilibrium model under monopolistic competition, we show that agglomeration is triggered by technological progress shifting production towards more skill intensive techniques.
Keywords: Skill-biased change economic geography
