Economic geography : the integration of regions and nations by Pierre-Philippe Combes ( Book )
14 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 369 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

The spatial distribution of economic activities in the EU by Pierre-Philippe Combes ( Book )
10 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Abstract This paper considers the spatial distribution of economic activities in the European Union. It has three main aims. (i) To describe the data that is available in the EU and give some idea of the rich spatial data sets that are fast becoming available at the national level. (ii) To present descriptive evidence on the location of aggregate activity and particular industries and to consider how these location patterns are changing over time. (iii) To consider the nature of the agglomeration and dispersion forces that determine these patterns and to contrast them to forces acting elsewhere, in particular the US. Our survey suggests that much has been achieved in the wave of empirical work that has occurred in the past decade, but that much work remains to be done"--London School of Economics web site
Can business and social networks explain the border effect puzzle? by Pierre-Philippe Combes ( Book )
10 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
McCallum (1995) a montré, dans une contribution influente, que l'existence de frontières réduit fortement le volume d'échanges entre pays. Obstfeld et Rogoff (2000) ont présenté cet effet frontière sur le commerce comme l'une des énigmes majeures de la macro-économie internationale. La compréhension de cette énigme a récemment progressé dans plusieurs directions. Mis à part les progrès concernant les problèmes méthodologiques, les avancées récentes ont surtout concerné des explications à l'impact des frontières politiques (internationales). L'explication touchant aux unions monétaires, comme toute explication reposant sur l'existence d'un coût de transaction spécifiquement international (comme les barrières protectionnistes), ne peut constituer une explication complète de l'impact des frontières sur les échanges commerciaux. En effet, comme Wolf (1997, 2000) l'a d'abord montré, les frontières administratives (intra-nationales) semblent aussi avoir un impact sur le commerce. Nous étudions dans cet article une explication possible de ces effets frontières intra-nationaux. Si l'existence de réseaux d'affaires et de réseaux sociaux contribuent à augmenter les échanges comme le souligne Rauch (2001), cela peut fournir une explication de l'existence d'effet frontière car les réseaux sont certainement plus denses et faciles à entretenir sur des distances courtes et donc à l'intérieur des frontières administratives. Nous utilisons des données sur les flux bilatéraux entre 94 départements français, pour 66 secteurs et 2 années (1978 et 1993) afin d'étudier l'ampleur et les variations au cours du temps et entre secteurs des effets frontières intra-nationaux. Les frontières départementales semblent avoir un impact sur les flux de marchandises en France, l'impact des frontières départementales est du même ordre de grandeur que celui des frontières séparant les Etats américains et étudiées dans Wolf (2000). Plus de 60% de ces effets frontières intra-nationaux peuvent être expliqués par la composition de l'emploi en termes de lieu de naissance (les réseaux sociaux) ou par les connections financières entre établissements (réseaux d'affaires). Les deux types de réseaux pris séparément font chuter le coefficient d'effet frontière de 50% environ. Après contrôle des deux types de réseaux, nos estimations montrent qu'un département français commerce "seulement" deux fois plus avec lui-même qu'avec un département non limitrophe de taille et à distance similaire. Les réseaux sociaux et d'affaires sont donc des déterminants importants des échanges sur le territoire français, ce qui correspond aux résultats obtenus pour les échanges internationaux (Rauch, 2001). Enfin ces effets émergent dans presque tous les secteurs identifiés, avec une intensité relativement stable

The productivity advantages of large cities: distinguishing agglomeration from firm selection ( Book )
10 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and German and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Firms are more productive on average in larger cities. Two main explanations have been offered: firm selection (larger cities toughen competition, allowing only the most productive to survive) and agglomeration economies (larger cities promote interactions that increase productivity), possibly reinforced by localised natural advantage. To distinguish between them, we nest a generalised version of a tractable firm selection model and a standard model of agglomeration. Stronger selection in larger cities left-truncates the productivity distribution whereas stronger agglomeration right-shifts and dilates the distribution. Using this prediction, French establishment level data, and a new quantile approach, we show that firm selection cannot explain spatial productivity differences. This result holds across sectors, city size thresholds, establishment samples, and area definitions
Agglomeration and the adjustment of the spatial economy by Pierre-Philippe Combes ( Book )
10 editions published in 2005 in English and Spanish and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
We consider the literatures on urban systems and New Economic Geography to examine questions concerning agglomeration and how areas respond to shocks to the economic environment. We first propose a diagrammatic framework to compare the two approaches. We then use this framework to study a number of extensions and to consider several policy relevant issues

Sorting and local wage and skill distributions in France ( Book )
6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper provides descriptive evidence about the distribution of wages and skills in denser and less dense employment areas in France. We confirm that on average, workers in denser areas are more skilled. There is also strong over-representation of workers with particularly high and low skills in denser areas. These features are consistent with patterns of migration including negative selection of migrants to less dense areas and positive selection towards denser areas. Nonetheless migration, even in the long run, accounts for little of the skill differences between denser and less dense areas. Finally, we find marked differences across age groups and some suggestions that much of the skill differences across areas can be explained by differences between occupational groups rather than within

Gender and competition : evidence from academic promotions in France by Clément Bosquet ( )
7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Differences in promotion across genders are still prevalent in many occupations. Recent work based on experimental evidence indicates that women participate less in or exert lower effort during contests. We exploit the unique features of the promotion system for French academics to look at women's attitudes towards competition in an actual labour market. Using data for academic economists over the period 1991-2008 we find that, conditional on entering the competition, there is no difference in promotions across the genders, which is difficult to reconcile with either discrimination or a poorer performance of women in contests. In contrast, women have a substantially lower probability than men to enter the promotion contest. Our data does not support that this gap is due to differences in costs or in preferences concerning department prestige, indicating that women are less willing than men to take part in contests

The identification of agglomeration economies by Pierre-Philippe Combes ( Book )
5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Measures of urban productivity are typically positively associated with city population. But is this relationship causal? We discuss the main sources of bias in the proper identification of agglomeration effects. We also assess a variety of solutions that have been proposed in the literature to deal with them
