Knowledge-based spatial differences in economic activity, job related migration and housing related migration

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The paper analyzes the mutual effects of growth of cities and migration between cities. A model in which cities manufacture goods in a traditional sector and in a technological sector, and each city exhibits independently learning-by-doing in the latter sector is presented. An empirical analysis of the differences between job-related migration and housing-related migration in the U.S. is conducted, finding that these two streams are indeed in-line with the model's prediction. Implications for regional development policies are discussed
