Changing the economic landscape : the phenomenon of regional inversion in the US manufacturing sector


Regional inversion is the name given to the phenomenon whereby the traditional industrial areas lose their weight in favor of what were formerly peripheral zones. The first objective of the paper is to offer a formal and rigorous definition of the concept of regional inversion from an econometric standpoint. Such a process is related with the long-run concepts of convergence and catching-up. This definition is tested through the use of unit root statistics and applied to demonstrate the presence of this phenomenon in some of the US two-digit SIC industries
