  • The Residential Solar PV in the Mid-Atlantic: A Spatial Panel Approach
    • Authors: Oleg Kucher, Donald Lacombe, Sean T. Davidson
      Abstract: International Regional Science Review, Ahead of Print.
      This study examines residential solar photovoltaic (PV) adoption in mid-Atlantic counties over the 2005–2016 period. Using a spatial Durbin panel model, we find significant spatial dependence in residential solar PV adoption at the county level. In the presence of spatial dependence, major determinants of the solar adoptions are electricity rates and solar-related policy regulation. The combined direct and indirect effect of electricity rates on solar PV capacity is 5.37 percent increase for a 1 percent increase in electricity price. This spatial coefficient estimate is about twice as large as corresponding panel estimates. We also find that the regulation and incentives significantly boost solar PV demand, which explains about 38 percent variation in residential solar capacity.

  • The Impact of Migration and Innovations on the Life Cycles and Size
           Distribution of Cities
    • Authors: Dani Broitman, Itzhak Benenson, Daniel Czamanski
      Abstract: International Regional Science Review, Ahead of Print.
      We present a comprehensive agent-based model of a closed system of cities. The model includes two types of agents—employees and firms. Firms compete for workers and make decisions concerning what to produce and whether to adopt innovations. Individual employees make migration decisions. Some migrants become intrapreneurs when their employers adopt production process innovations that they propose. Some migrants become entrepreneurs when the product innovations that they propose are implemented by their employers in new subsidiary firms. These firms tend to be technological leaders. The decisions of individuals and of firms generate innovation–migration dynamics that generate a variety of city sizes. A city that is home to firms that are currently relatively attractive to migrating innovators experience moderate or fast growth. Because of particular decision patterns by individuals and firms, this growth may decline and stop, and the city may stagnate and loose workers as its relative attractiveness decreases. Cities that remain unattractive for long periods can stop growing and shrink. We model explicitly the extent to which cities attract immigrants and innovators and demonstrate that the size distribution of cities is defined by the ability of its resident firms to adopt the innovations and to let the product innovators establish technologically advanced enterprises. These decisions result in high market value of the most productive firms, of the entire industrial system the city where the firm is located, and of the entire urban system.

  • What Do We Know about the University Contribution to Regional Economic
           Development' A Conceptual Framework
    • Authors: Thomas Brekke
      Abstract: International Regional Science Review, Ahead of Print.
      There are a rapidly growing number of scientific studies analyzing the role of university and higher educational institutions in regional economic development. In this study, the author reviews the rapidly growing body of research streaming out of the geography of innovation and knowledge with particular attention to the period from 1994 to 2019. The author discusses several seminal contributions on the role of universities in regional economic development and then applies a systematic literature review to the extant research of 193 articles. This literature review offers a conceptual framework by identifying four key topics found in the literature: organizational capacity, intermediaries, knowledge dynamics, and policy.

  • Inequality and Opportunities in the Spanish Regions: The Role of
    • Authors: Ana Suárez Álvarez, Ana Jesús López Menéndez
      Abstract: International Regional Science Review, Ahead of Print.
      The aim of this article is to analyze inequality and inequality of opportunity (IOp) for the Spanish regions Autnomous Communities (CCAA), paying main attention to the situation of foreign immigrants. For this purpose, we use the European Social Survey of Income and Living Conditions database and some variables regarding individuals’ perceptions about immigration from the European Social Survey. We find that both income inequality and IOp increase between 2004 and 2010 for the great majority of the Spanish regions. Moreover, we observe convergence between regions in terms of IOp, while there is not convergence in terms of income inequality. In addition, the contribution of the different variables used as circumstances to estimate IOp varies greatly. The contribution to IOp of being an immigrant experienced a considerable and worrying increase, whereas the importance of family background characteristics is reduced to a great extent. Likewise, the analysis in deep of the situation of immigrants provides some interesting evidence. Firstly, we show that immigrant population experienced a downturn in their situation in terms of income; secondly, we find that, according to individuals’ perceptions about immigration, as the share of immigrants rises, there is an improvement in their impact in cultural life.

  • One for All and All for One: Collaboration and Cooperation in Triple Helix
           Knowledge Cocreation
    • Authors: Carla Mascarenhas, Carla Marques, João J. Ferreira
      Abstract: International Regional Science Review, Ahead of Print.
      If innovation is the engine of economies, the partnerships in the Triple Helix model of innovation are the fuel that makes this engine work. Although each member of this model has its defined role, the present study sought to gain a new perspective on these partnerships, including the role of governments. Based on interviews with representatives of universities, companies, and governments in two countries (i.e., Portugal and Spain), this research focused on how innovation partnerships are formed as well as what obstacles to cooperation can arise. The results show that governments can play the role not only of a financier and legislator but also of a direct participant in innovation by entering into partnerships with the other Triple Helix actors. In addition, this study revealed that, irrespective of which partners and needs are in question, these networks operate mostly with public funds.

  • Are Chinese Cities Oversized'
    • Authors: Daidai Shen, Jean-Claude Thill, Jiuwen Sun
      Abstract: International Regional Science Review, Ahead of Print.
      In this article, the socioeconomic determinants on urban population in China are empirically investigated with a theoretical equilibrium model for city size. While much of the research on urban size focuses on the impact of agglomeration economies based on “optimal city size” theory, this model is eschewed in our research due to its theoretical paradox in the real world, and we turn instead toward an intermediate solution proposed by Camagni, Capello, and Caragliu. This equilibrium model is estimated on a sample of 111 prefectural cities in China with multiple regression and artificial neural networks. Empirical results have shown that the model explains the variance in the data very well, and all the determinants have significant impacts on Chinese city sizes. Although sample cities have reached their equilibrium sizes as a whole, there is substantially unbalanced distribution of population within the urban system, with a strong contingent of cities that are either squarely too large or too small.

  • Regional Integration: Do Intra-African Trade and Migration Improve Income
           in Africa'
    • Authors: Blaise Gnimassoun
      Abstract: International Regional Science Review, Ahead of Print.
      Regional integration in Africa is a subject of great interest, but its impact on income has not been studied sufficiently. Using cross-sectional and panel estimations, this article examines the impact of African integration on real per capita income in Africa. Accordingly, we consider intra-African trade and migration flows as quantitative measures reflecting the intensity of regional integration. To address the endogeneity concerns, we use a gravity-based, two-stage least-squares strategy. Our results show that, from a long-term perspective, African integration has not been strong enough to generate a positive, significant, and robust impact on real per capita income in Africa. However, it does appear to be significantly income-enhancing in the short and medium terms but only through intercountry migration. These results are robust to a wide range of specifications.

  • The Hope Fulfilled' Measuring Research Performance of Universities in
           the Economic Crisis
    • Authors: Qiantao Zhang, Paige A. Clayton, Shiri M. Breznitz
      Abstract: International Regional Science Review, Ahead of Print.
      The economic and financial crisis of 2008–2013 caused most universities to revisit their traditional funding allocations. In a time of budget constraints, some universities have been able to enjoy an increasing level of research expenditure, while other aspects of their budgets have been cut. This article analyzes changes in research funding and output at three research universities in Atlanta, Georgia, between 2002 and 2015, covering periods both before and after the crisis. Although the amount of research expenditure has continued to increase in the three universities after the crisis, the efficiency of research funding has declined. The results argue that the approach undertaken by governments and universities after the crisis has been partial and too narrowly focused on the financial terms of research to take into consideration many relevant factors constraining research performance of academics.

  • Public Research, Local Knowledge Transfer, and Regional Development:
           Insights from a Structural VAR Model
    • Authors: Jonathan Eberle, Thomas Brenner, Timo Mitze
      Abstract: International Regional Science Review, Ahead of Print.
      This article estimates the regional economic effects of public research activities. In order to identify the underlying transmission channels from knowledge creation to the regional environment, the empirical identification strategy goes beyond traditional partial effects analyses and studies the complex linkages between public research, innovativeness, and regional development on the basis of a structural vector autoregressive model. A particular focus is thereby set on assessing whether the effects of local public research activity differ by the type of research actors (universities, technical colleges, and public research institutes). The empirical results indicate that an increase in the volume of (public) third-party funding to technical colleges is associated with a rise in the regional investment and employment rate as well as the human capital stock. Increasing public third-party funding to both universities and technical colleges positively affects the regional patent activity, the employment rate, and per workforce output. In comparison, the empirical results provide limited evidence for regional economic effects stemming from an increase in local knowledge creation measured in terms of scientific publications. Here, only variations in the publication rate of public research institutes can be linked to positive private sector investment and employment effects.

  • How Far Is the Optimal Intercity Distance' Evidence from China
    • Authors: Guocheng Xiang, Yunjun Xiong, Jingjing Liu, Shihu Zhong, Xin Jiang
      Abstract: International Regional Science Review, Ahead of Print.
      Based on the “centripetal force” and “centrifugal force” of the intermolecular distance model in physics, this article establishes a worthwhile and original mathematical model to analyze the influence of the distribution of cities on urban labor productivity. We incorporate the crowding parameter into the local spillover model and demonstrate the existence of the optimal intercity distance. In addition, we estimate the optimal intercity distance for urban economic efficiency by using data from Chinese prefecture-level cities. Judging from the deviation between the actual average distance and the optimal average distance in each region, the cities in the eastern region are overcrowding, and the cities in the central and western regions are too sparse. Findings in this study carry several important policy implications. For areas in the central and western regions with large administrative areas and large populations, it would be appropriate to increase the number of prefecture-level cities and industrial density through industrial transfer and development. This approach is conducive not only to improving the economic efficiency of the central and western cities and reducing the congestion of eastern cities but also to accommodating the radiation effect of the city on rural areas and achieving the goal of common prosperity.

  • Restrictive Land Use Regulations and Economic Performance
    • Authors: Taner Osman
      Abstract: International Regional Science Review, Ahead of Print.
      There is emerging evidence that restrictive land use practices can misallocate economic activity across space and generate significant costs for regional and national economies. Work in this area has considered how land use regulations affect the supply of housing within, and the efficient migration of workers among, regions. According to some estimates, by restricting migration to the most productive regions in the United States, land use regulations generate an annual cost to the economy of up to US$1.95 trillion or 13.6 percent of gross domestic product. Yet this focus on labor migration provides an insufficient framework for understanding how land use regulations can shape economic performance. First, current approaches minimize the costs that could arise if firms and industries are misallocated across space. Second, current work overlooks the costs that might arise if land use restrictions misallocate economic activity within regions. Land use regulations can generate significant costs when their administration is designed to maximize the welfare of individual communities rather than the economies of regions and nations. This article will evaluate current research into, and provide a more complete assessment of, the welfare costs associated with restrictive land use practices.

  • Impacts of Neighbors on Local Tax Rates: A Space–Time Dynamic Panel
           Data Analysis

      Abstract: International Regional Science Review, Ahead of Print.
      This article explores the spatiotemporal pattern in the local tax system of Extremadura, a region in the southwest of Spain. Using the most relevant tax in terms of revenues at the local level in Spain, the property tax on urban land, a very general space–time dynamic panel data model with spatial and time period fixed effects, has been estimated to explore different types of strategic tax interactions among local governments. The empirical analysis uses a balanced panel database covering 383 municipalities from Extremadura for the period 2006–2015 to estimate the reaction of tax policy in a given municipality to its own past, to changes in tax policy in other municipalities, and to (direct and indirect) changes in some control variables. The results show that nominal local property tax rates are affected by tax policy inertia from the own municipality and neighboring municipalities and two observed municipal characteristics, whereas effective tax rates depend on tax policy inertia from the own municipality and property tax policies from neighboring municipalities and five observed municipal characteristics. In both cases, local spillover effects are not significant at standard statistical levels.

  • A Spatial Perspective on the Econometrics of Program Evaluation
    • Authors: Marynia Kolak, Luc Anselin
      First page: 128
      Abstract: International Regional Science Review, Ahead of Print.
      Empirical work in regional science has seen a growing interest in causal inference, leveraging insights from econometrics, statistics, and related fields. This has resulted in several conceptual as well as empirical papers. However, the role of spatial effects, such as spatial dependence (SD) and spatial heterogeneity (SH), is less well understood in this context. Such spatial effects violate the so-called stable unit treatment value assumption advanced by Rubin as part of the foundational framework for empirical treatment effect analysis. In this article, we consider the role of spatial effects more closely. We provide a brief overview of a number of attempts to extend existing econometric treatment effect evaluation methods with an accounting for spatial aspects and outline and illustrate an alternative approach. Specifically, we propose a spatially explicit counterfactual framework that leverages spatial panel econometrics to account for both SD and SH in treatment choice, treatment variation, and treatment effects. We illustrate this framework with a replication of a well-known treatment effect analysis, that is, the evaluation effect of minimum legal drinking age laws on mortality for US states during the period 1970–1984, a classic textbook example of applied causal inference. We replicate the results available in the literature and compare these to a range of alternative specifications that incorporate spatial effects.
