Market structure and competition policy : game theoretic approaches( )

25 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in English and held by 1,905 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work applies modern advances in game theory to the analysis of competition policy and develops some of the theoretical and policy concerns associated with the pioneering work of Louis Phlips. Containing contributions by scholars from Europe and North America, the book observes a common theme in the relationship between the regulatory regime and market structure. Since the inception of the new industrial organization, economists have developed a better understanding of how real world markets operate. These results have particular relevance to the design and application of anti-trust policy. Analyses indicate that picking the most competitive framework in the short run may be detrimental to competition and welfare in the long run, concentrating the attention of policy makers on the impact on the long-run market structure. This book should provide interesting reading for graduate students of industrial and managerial economics as well as researchers and policy makers
Economics of agglomeration : cities, industrial location, and regional growth by Masahisa Fujita( )

22 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 1,732 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides the first unifying treatment of the range of economic reasons for the clustering of firms and households. Its goal is to explain further the trade-off between various forms of increasing returns and different types of mobility costs. Although referring to agglomeration as a generic term is convenient, it should be noted that the concept of economic agglomeration refers to distinct real world situations. The main focus of the treatment is on cities, but it also explores the formation of agglomerations, such as commercial districts within cities, industrial clusters at the regional level, and the existence of imbalance between regions. The book is rooted within the realm of modern economics and borrows concepts from geography and regional science, which makes it accessible to a broad audience formed by economists, geographers, regional planners, and other scientists. It may be used in coursework for graduate students and upper-level undergraduates
Discrete choice theory of product differentiation by Simon P Anderson( )

22 editions published between 1992 and 2001 in English and held by 1,628 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Discrete Choice Theory of Product Differentiation introduces students and researchers to the field, starting at the beginning and moving through to frontier research. The first four chapters detail the consumer-theoretic foundations underlying choice probability systems (including an overview of the main models used in the psychological theory of choice), and the next four chapters apply the probabilistic choice approach to oligopoly models of product differentiation, product selection, and location choice. The final chapter suggests various extensions of the models presented as well as topics for further research."--Jacket
Economic geography : the integration of regions and nations by Pierre-Philippe Combes( )

21 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 802 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Economic Geography is the most complete, up-to-date textbook available on the important new field of spatial economics. This book fills a gap by providing advanced undergraduate and graduate students with the latest research and methodologies in an accessible and comprehensive way. It is an indispensable reference for researchers in economic geography, regional and urban economics, international trade, and applied econometrics, and can serve as a resource for economists in government. The book presents advances in economic theory that explain why, despite the increasing mobility of commodities, ideas, and people, the diffusion of economic activity is very unequal and remains agglomerated in a limited number of spatial entities. The book complements theoretical analysis with detailed discussions of the empirics of the economics of agglomeration, offering a mix of theoretical and empirical research that gives a unique perspective on spatial disparities. It reveals how location continues to matter for trade and economic development, yet how economic integration is transforming the global economy into an economic space in which activities are performed within large metropolitan areas exchanging goods, skills, and information

Economic geography and the unequal development of regions by J.-C Prager( )

3 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 470 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Behind the mystery of economic growth stands another mystery: why do some places fare better than others? Casual evidence shows that sizable differences exist at very different spatial scales (countries, regions and cities). This book aims to discuss the main economic reasons for the existence of peaks and troughs in the spatial distribution of wealth and people, with a special emphasis on the role of large cities and regional agglomerations in the process of economic development
Economics of cities : theoretical perspectives by Jean-Marie Huriot( Book )

18 editions published between 1999 and 2009 in English and held by 409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Because cities are likely to play an even more predominant role in the global economy in the future than they do at present, it is important to understand how urban centers are created, grow, and function in the process of generating and distributing wealth. This integrated collection of essays exploring the new economic theories concerning cities assembles recent work by a number of the world's leading experts in North America, the United Kingdom and Europe, and Japan. Topics investigated include cities and agglomeration, urban systems, urbanization and growth, and cities and factor markets."--Jacket
Handbook of regional and urban economics by J. Vernon Henderson( )

17 editions published between 1986 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Cities and Geography' provides a broad overview of the progress made by economists during the last decade in developing a better understanding of why economic activities are so spatially concentrated and the consequences of this type of distribution for economic agents and the efficiency of the 'space economy'
Locational analysis of public facilities( Book )

Economics of agglomeration : cities, industrial location, and globalization by Masahisa Fujita( Book )

17 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Economic activities are not concentrated on the head of a pin, nor are they spread evenly over a featureless plane. On the contrary, they are distributed very unequally across locations, regions, and countries. Even though economic activities are, to some extent, spatially concentrated because of natural features, economic mechanisms that rely on the trade-off between various forms of increasing returns and different types of mobility costs are more fundamental. This book is a study of the economic reasons for the existence of a large variety of agglomerations arising from the global to the local. This second edition combines a comprehensive analysis of the fundamentals of spatial economics and an in-depth discussion of the most recent theoretical developments in new economic geography and urban economics. It aims to highlight several of the major economic trends observed in modern societies
Does economic space matter? : essays in honour of Melvin L. Greenhut by Arthur J Wolak( Book )

11 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a Festschrift to honour Professor Melvin Greenhut who has long toiled on spatial economics. The book accordingly focuses on a single question: in what sense 'economic space' matters in economic theory. Space in economics is an elusive concept, apparently separating and embracing economic agents at the same time. This is why adding it to already overly complicated economic agents at the same time. This is why adding it to already overly complicated economic models may not necessarily help economics to become sufficiently realistic. In this book, leading scholars of international stature try to find ways of introducing space in economic theory which will make it simpler and more realistic, analysing theoretical and historical issues of contemporary relevance, such as land use, congestion and public goods, location theory and spatial competition

Économie géographique du développement by J.-C Prager( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in French and Undetermined and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Quelles sont les principales raisons du développement inégal des territoires ? L'économie géographique, mais aussi l'histoire économique, permettent de comprendre pourquoi la croissance économique et ses deux sources principales, le capital humain et l'innovation, sont des phénomènes localisés dont la diffusion dans l'espace est lente et imparfaite. Si la proximité des ressources naturelles a largement vu son importance décliner, cela n'implique pas que distance et localisation aient disparu de la vie économique. Au contraire, les travaux les plus récents mettent en évidence les forces qui façonnent la nouvelle division spatiale du travail, laquelle repose principalement sur les grandes métropoles ou régions urbaines. Paradoxalement, la réduction des coûts de transfert des biens et de l'information a permis une telle évolution. La mondialisation accélérée des dernières décennies n'est donc pas celle d'un monde plat : elle a ses pics de prospérité et laisse en arrière ou bouscule un grand nombre de territoires, alors que dans certains pays moins avancés la pauvreté semble s'ancrer comme une marque indélébile des malchances conjuguées de l'histoire et de la géographie
