  • Extending Green Innovations Across Clusters: HOW can Firms Benefit
           Most'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Isabel Díez-Vial, Jose A Belso-Martínez, Martín-de-Castro Gregorio
      Abstract: International Regional Science Review, Ahead of Print.
      This paper analyses how green product and process innovations affect firms’ sustainable performance. It seems evident that green innovations should benefit not only society but also the firms, although it is not clearly stated how this relationship works, especially inside clusters. We theorise that green process and product innovations have a curvilinear relationship with firm sustainable performance and that the geographical concentration of clusters has a positive reinforcing role for green product innovations. To test these theoretical expectations, moderated regression and quantile regression were applied to a sample of 175 firms from the Spanish footwear industry. Results confirm that although green innovations do improve performance, they have an inverted “U” shape that makes investments in green innovation less profitable above a certain threshold. In addition, we observe that geographical concentration is stronger for green product innovations since green process innovations need more tacit-based knowledge and internal capabilities, making the cluster effect less significant.

  • What Affects Perceived Health Risk Attitude During the Pandemic: Evidence
           From Migration and Dining Behavior in China

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Xiaoguang Chen, William A.V. Clark, Jingye Shi, Bing Xu
      Abstract: International Regional Science Review, Ahead of Print.
      The COVID-19 pandemic changed behaviors, at least temporarily, and possibly more permanently, with implications for both work and leisure activities. Some of those behavioral changes, such as dining in restaurants, have significant ripple effects on businesses and employment. We investigate the response to health risks in China with a study of decisions about eating out during the pandemic. We find that compared to a traditional measure of financial risk attitude, dining out behavior better captures individuals’ attitude toward the health risk posed by the pandemic and is more significant in predicting their expected total consumption during the recovery phase of the pandemic. In addition, we find that the effect of domestic in-migration is positive with respect to dining out, a signifier of confidence in the government response to the safety of internal flows. In contrast, international migration and port city of entry status are strongly negative with respect to dining out. The risk from the virus is perceived to be much stronger in such contexts. From a policy perspective establishing border controls was critical in re-creating a robust economy. Additional city and household level characteristics that affect dining-out behavior are also identified.

  • Does Absorptive Capacity Matter in the Impact of Immigration on Innovation
           in Africa' Evidence from Panel Quantile Regression with Nonadditive
           fixed Effects

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Nassibou Bassongui, Houda Ben Younes
      Abstract: International Regional Science Review, Ahead of Print.
      This study aims to assess the role of absorptive capacity in the relationship between immigration and domestic innovation in sending countries using five average period data points from a sample of 35 African countries over the period 1995-2019. The results based on panel quantile regression with nonadditive fixed effects support the brain drain hypothesis, implying that immigration has negative heterogeneous effects on the innovation performance of sending countries. Our findings also revealed that absorptive capacity mitigates the negative effects of immigration when countries’ absorptive capacity reaches a certain threshold. These results suggest that strengthening the quality of institutions and physical infrastructures could mitigate the brain drain effect of immigration in Africa.

  • Universities, Local Economic Productivity and Quality of Institutions:
           Evidence From Italy

      Authors: Adalgiso Amendola, Cristian Barra, Roberto Zotti
      Abstract: International Regional Science Review, Ahead of Print.
      An important issue in economic geography is the link between higher education institutions and economic performance at local level. This paper exploits some aspects of the university funding system in Italy to estimate the effects of hosting higher education institutions on local productivity and furthermore tests whether local institutions have a moderating role in this relationship. The findings firstly confirm that university performance positively affects local economies. Secondly, we argue that an important channel linking universities to greater economic activity is the administrative capacity of local governments to create strong social and economic structures.

  • Spillover and Re-Spillover in China’s Collaborative Innovation

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Song Wang, Jiexin Wang, Yixiao Wang, Xueli Wang
      Abstract: International Regional Science Review, Ahead of Print.
      The spillover effect serves as the basis of regional collaborative innovation. Existing research on innovation spillover focuses on the overall impact of a region's innovation factors on local and other regions' innovation activities. However, re-spillover may occur since the flow of innovation factors between any two regions may influence the innovation in third-party regions. This study quantifies labor flow, capital flow, and institutional learning between regions in China using a gravity model and a social network analysis model, and then applies a spatial econometric model to investigate innovation spillover and re-spillover. The results show that re-spillover can better explain levels of regional innovation. Capital, government support, labour flow, capital flow, and institutional learning have a positive spillover effect on local innovation, while labour flow also has positive spillover effects to other regions.

  • How Industrial Diversity Shapes the Effects of Foreign Direct Investment
           Spillovers on Regional Innovation

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Renato Garcia, Veneziano Araujo, Suelene Mascarini, Emerson Gomes Santos, Ariana Costa, Sarah Ferreira
      Abstract: International Regional Science Review, Ahead of Print.
      Inward Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) can generate important knowledge spillovers on local economies, fostering regional innovation, especially in developing countries. In this paper, we analyze how regional industrial structure shapes the effects of inward FDI spillovers on the innovative performance of Brazilian regions. Prior literature has analyzed the effects of FDI spillovers on the productivity of host countries’ firms, while less attention has been given to the corresponding effects on regional innovation. Thus, we use data on the investments of Multinational Companies in Brazilian regions for 2003-2014 and relate these data to the innovative performance measured by patents. Our results show that inward FDI positively influences innovation at the regional level since Brazilian regions that receive inward FDI present stronger innovative performance. In addition, the positive effects of inward FDI on local innovation are reinforced by the diversity of the regional industrial structure. Diversified regions that receive inward FDI are therefore better able to leverage the benefits of inward FDI spillovers.

  • A Multi-Scale Suitability Analysis of Home-Improvement Retail-Store Site
           Selection for Ontario, Canada

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Derek T. Robinson, Bogdan Caradima
      Abstract: International Regional Science Review, Ahead of Print.
      A multi-scale suitability analysis using big data (4.7 million suitability scores) is presented across a large spatial extent (1.076 million km2) to identify potential locations for new home-improvement retail stores. Suitability scores were generated for individual property parcels using criteria weights derived from surveyed retail-industry experts. To increase capacity for site selection, distributions of suitability scores were generated at census dissemination areas (populations 500-700; n = 19,963) and census metropolitan and agglomeration areas (core populations>10,000; n = 43). Analogues among metropolitan and agglomeration areas were generated and spatial clustering was used to identify groups of highly-suitable parcels within urban areas. Lastly, individual parcels can be interrogated for overall suitability or individual criteria scores. Our approach combines retail methods typically used in isolation (e.g. location quotient, Huff’s model, network analysis) and demonstrates how a simple survey can be used to weight criteria. Results show that survey respondents were in general agreement and that top-line revenues were more critical to perceived location success than development and operational costs. Analysis of suitability scores found analogues and clusters of census metropolitan areas that coincide with store sales as well as clusters of highly suitable parcels predominantly located around major highways. In addition to identifying challenges and solutions to the presented research, we also describe future research directions that extend the presented static analysis to include processes like store closure and openings, competition, and land use change through the use of agent-based modelling.

  • Relatedness, Complexity, and Economic Growth in Chinese Cities

      Authors: Yingcheng Li, David Rigby
      Abstract: International Regional Science Review, Ahead of Print.
      Innovation is generally regarded as critical to long-run economic growth. Recent work, at different spatial scales, suggests economies that develop more complex technologies that are related to their existing knowledge stocks enjoy a growth premium. Thus, “smarter” forms of innovation may accelerate growth. These claims are examined using Chinese patent data distributed across 286 cities over the period 1991–2015. Fixed-effects panel models report that city-level GDP growth in China has a significant and positive relationship with diversification into more related and complex technologies, after controlling for the overall pace of innovation and other covariates. Robustness checks focusing on spatial autocorrelation and endogeneity affirm the core findings.

  • The Influence of Regional Resilience Elements on the Performance of
           Clustered Firms

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Vitor K. Schmidt, Aurora C. Zen, Bruno A. Bittencourt
      Abstract: International Regional Science Review, Ahead of Print.
      Regional economic resilience is a term used to describe the ability of economic systems to withstand, recover from, and adapt to different economic and technological shocks. The literature argues that clustered firms perform better than isolated firms in regional economic systems. This study aims to analyze the influence of regional resilience elements on the performance of firms in a cluster. Therefore, we surveyed 194 wineries in the Wine Cluster of the Serra Gaúcha (WCSG) in Brazil. We confirmed a positive and significant linear relationship among economic specialization, international relations, technological heterogeneity, and public policies. The case of the WCSG highlights the adaptation process as a source of economic resilience. After facing several shocks in its territory, the cluster was able to organize itself, recombining different knowledge sources to explore new economic paths. This study contributes to the theoretical and managerial fields by discussing resilience along the cluster’s trajectory.

  • Regional Differences in Okun’s Law and Explanatory Factors: Some
           Insights From Europe

      Authors: Adolfo Maza
      Abstract: International Regional Science Review, Ahead of Print.
      Okun’s law is one of the best-known stylized facts in the economic literature, as well as one of the most widely used policy tools. The aim of this paper, which utilizes a comprehensive sample of 265 European regions by using annual observations covering the period from 2000 to 2019, is to deepen our knowledge of Okun’s law from two perspectives: on one hand, by checking the existence and intensity of regional differences, and on the other hand, by assessing the factors that explain them. To this end, in the first part, we apply a heterogeneous panel approach that deals with cross-sectional dependence, which allows us to obtain an average coefficient as well as region-specific coefficients. In the second part, a cross-sectional spatial model is used to uncover explanatory factors. Our findings reveal quite remarkable regional differences, as well as a somewhat geographical pattern in them. Moreover, they point out the importance of demographic factors (such as gender and age), labor market variables (share of employment in industry and construction, as well as self-employment and part-time employment and the severity of long-term unemployment), R&D expenditure, and some national institutional factors when it comes to explaining differences across regions.

  • Impacts of Housing Booms on Fertility in China: A Perspective From
           Homeownership

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Yinghao Pan, Hao Yang
      Abstract: International Regional Science Review, Ahead of Print.
      Due to the nexus of wealth effect and cost effect, the impact of housing price on fertility is ambiguous in theory. However, the relation between housing price and fertility is essential for policymakers, especially in developing countries. This paper constructs an individual-level panel data set of over 40,000 randomly selected Chinese females with detailed fertility history during 2006–2010 from the Census 2010. Exploiting variation of housing price growth across cities over time and conditional on marriage status, we show that a 1,000 yuan upward shift in housing price induces the possibility of new birth by 13.9% for homeowners. Homeownership plays a vital role in housing price on fertility. These findings suggest that the wealth effect of housing price dominates the cost effect during the sample periods in China.

  • The Response of Creative Class Members to Regions Vying to Attract Them
           With Subsidies

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Amitrajeet A. Batabyal, Hamid Beladi
      Abstract: International Regional Science Review, Ahead of Print.
      There are no theoretical studies in regional science that examine which region to locate in from the standpoint of a creative class member, given that the pertinent regional authorities (RAs) are competing among themselves to attract the creative class using subsidies. This gap provides the motivation for our paper. This paper’s contribution is that it is the first to theoretically study the regional location choice of creative class members when the RAs of the locations in which they might locate are using subsidies to attract them. Specifically, a knowledge good producing creative class member must decide which of two regions (A or B) to locate his plant in. This good is produced using a Cobb–Douglas function with creative and physical capital. We analyze plant location in four cases. In the benchmark case, we show that the representative creative class member ought to locate his plant in the less expensive region B. Next, we show that a small subsidy to creative capital by region A switches the plant location decision from region B to A. Finally, when both regions grant identical subsidies to creative capital, the representative creative class member is indifferent between locating in regions A and B. So, for identical subsidies to affect the plant location decision, they are better targeted to physical and not to creative capital.JEL Codes: R11, R58

  • Will Increasing Housing Supply Reduce Urban Inequality'

      Abstract: International Regional Science Review, Ahead of Print.
      In recent years, there has been a debate over the extent to which housing-supply regulations increase inequality and reduce workers access to more productive cities. This problem is formalized in a two-city model with skilled and unskilled workers to study the impact of one city relaxing land-use restrictions. Such a policy will raise welfare, but inequality and the number of unskilled workers locating in more productive cities may rise or fall. And when the policy does reduce inequality, there is a decline in unskilled workers in the higher productivity city. Inclusive zoning policies can mitigate this effect but weaken agglomeration economies. A city authority that takes into account equity considerations may prioritize more or less housing for unskilled workers than the market, depending on the degree of societal aversion to inequality. The model is extended to include homeownership and racial discrimination in the housing market. Homeowners are not necessarily harmed by less restrictive land-use policy, but racial discrimination reduces the benefits of homeownership for minority groups.

      Abstract: International Regional Science Review, Ahead of Print.
      This paper examines how short-term rentals are changing living conditions and the composition of the population in affected parts of a town. First, to analyze the relation between quality, distance, and rents, we develop a spatial monocentric city model with varying housing quality levels. Second, for 200 m grids in the city of Berlin (Germany) in 2019, we show that the proportion of low and medium quality residential units correlates positively near the city center with the probability of Airbnb listings and the number of these listings, but negatively in the suburbs. Third, applying fixed effect and IV strategies, we investigate the impact of Airbnb listings on living conditions and the composition of the population in the almost 450 planning areas of Berlin in the years 2016–2019. We show that Airbnb offers increase the number of residents with long periods of residence and reduce the number of residents in low-quality residential environments, but we do not find above-average effects on socially weak groups.JEL Classification: R21, R31, Z32

  • University-Industry Collaboration in a Cross-Border Iberian Regions

      Abstract: International Regional Science Review, Ahead of Print.
      This study sought to understand how the differences in university-industry (U-I) dynamics in two cross-border regions act on their research and innovation performance. Surveys were administered to academics from research centres or units in Portugal’s Northern Region and Spain’s Castile and Leon. Data were also collected from the Community Innovation Survey (CIS2014) conducted in Portugal and Spain, to obtain a broader perspective on the topic and regions under analysis. A comparison could thus be made between the researchers’ perspective (i.e. micro) and the companies’ perspective that answered the CIS questionnaire (i.e. meso) on U-I collaboration dynamics. The questionnaires were analysed using Partial least squares structural equation modelling, and the data from CIS survey using logistic regression. The results show that U-I cooperation is associated with (i) time spent on research and development, (ii) budgets based on direct contracts with industries, (iii) companies’ location and (iv) incentives for collaboration. However, the researchers’ age and academic field are the only factors affecting which incentives for collaboration are significant. The results also reveal that U-I collaboration influences regions’ innovation profiles. These findings contribute to a fuller, more empirical understanding of U-I cooperation, demonstrating that encouragement of this type of collaboration can be a driver of innovation in any region. This article contributes in policy terms to a better understanding of the necessary incentives for both U-I collaboration and the internationalisation of this collaboration.

  • Multi-dimensional boundary effects and regional economic integration:
           Evidence from the Yangtze River Economic Belt

      Abstract: International Regional Science Review, Ahead of Print.
      While the challenges posed by multi-dimensional boundary effects to global economic integration are studied widely, regional economic integration within a sovereign country requires additional analysis. The Yangtze River Economic Belt (YREB), a super-scale interprovincial area including three nested urban alliances, is a meaningful vision of regional economic integration in China. After building the producer services-based urban corporate network, this study investigates the influence of multi-dimensional boundary effects on regional economic integration by social network analysis and the exponential random graph model. The findings show that the fragmented reality of YREB’s economy is significantly different from the vision of the Chinese central government. More specifically, although the natural boundary restraints represented by distance have disappeared, multi-dimensional barriers to regional economic integration are still posed by administrative, policy, economic, and cultural boundaries. The estimation results pass the robustness test of the grouping sample of producer services. Therefore, we confirm that the multi-dimensional boundary effects, particularly the intangible ones, significantly impact regional economic integration even within a country with a top-down ‘strong’ governance.

  • Institutional Evolution and the Collaborative Development of Technology
           Transfer Capabilities

      Authors: Mary Donegan, Maryann Feldman
      Abstract: International Regional Science Review, Ahead of Print.
      This article examines the development of university technology transfer operations at the Research Triangle region’s three universities. Organized to commercialize university-based scientific inventions, this expertise was essential to university engagement in the region’s long-term development. Early collaborative efforts to jump-start technology transfer in the region were promoted via a joint licensing consortium. Those early efforts—and their eventual devolution to the universities—are critical to understanding the region’s subsequent development. We document a process of competing institutional logics and institutional interpretation, with officials from each campus continually interpreting the collaborative’s value against their own institution’s evolving needs.

  • Characteristics and Outputs of University Spin-offs in the United Kingdom

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Sharmistha Bagchi-Sen, Ning Baines, Helen Lawton Smith
      Abstract: International Regional Science Review, Ahead of Print.
      Research on the formal role of universities in stimulating regional economic development is relatively recent. However, the role of universities in contributing to regional technological and service variety is underresearched. In this study, we use a data set that has wide geographic coverage. The analysis provides a comprehensive understanding of the UK-wide contribution of university spin-offs (USOs) to the innovation capacity of their host regional economies. We argue that the survival and growth of USOs imply embeddedness in innovation ecosystems in a region. The findings show that the majority of firms in the sample are relatively young, small in size, and are still at the early stages of their life cycle. Hence, the products and services that are offered are fairly small in number. Nevertheless, their products/services based on university research have the potential for value capture by other firms thus implying contributions to a range of related and unrelated industry sectors within a region or beyond the local.

  • 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.
