  • Wider urban zones: use of topology and nighttime satellite images for
           delimiting urban areas

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract In the literature on the definition of urban areas, the methodological approaches are divided into formalist (aggregation by density thresholds) and functionalist (aggregation by commuting quotas). This paper proposes a mixed approach, in which the territorial density threshold from the lower-level administrative unit is combined with the brightness of nighttime satellite imagery, intended as a proxy variable for the functional links. The objective is to attain a method for the delimitation of urban areas, to be used by various States and Regions across the world in an iterative procedure, for the delimitation of urban areas as connected topological spaces. This represents an independent method, compared to the various standards adopted by national and regional statistics bureaus, which allows comparing the infrastructural, economic, and social data of different cities in the world. Such cities are hence described in terms of the “real” dimension of the urban areas, partially correcting the bias related to the adoption of administrative perimeters as a “fact” when local authorities make decisions regarding them.

  • The fiscal consequences of immigration: a study of local
           governments’ expenditures

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract In this paper we examine how Finnish municipalities’ expenditures depend on the share of citizens with foreign background out of the total population. Empirical analyses make use of Finnish panel data from 295 municipalities and 202 migrant nationalities for the period 1987–2018. It turns out that the share of foreign population tends to increase per capita expenditures up to the point where the respective semi-elasticity is about one. The result seems robust in terms of different control variables, subsamples of the data and estimation techniques. Sizeable differences between different nationalities could, however, be detected. Thus, we cannot assume that the use of public services is neutral in terms of demographic changes and that should be considered when making assessments on overall fiscal effects of migration.

  • Persistence studies: a new kind of economic history'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Since the early years of the 21st century, economists have started to look for the historical roots of current economic outcomes. In this article, we deal with this new approach (called persistence studies), as represented by the 75 articles published in ten leading economics journals since 2001. We outline the key features (issues, period, geographical area of interest, etc.) of these articles and we discuss their citational record, in comparison with the (much more numerous) economic history articles in the same journals. We also explore the affiliation and training of the 121 authors of persistence studies, highlighting the role of some Boston institutions as the cradle of the new approach.

  • Geographical accessibility to bank branches and its relationship to new
           firm formation in Sweden via multiscale geographically weighted regression
           

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The geographical accessibility to banks and its relationship with new firm formation can vary across space due to spatial contexts. With increasing bank branch closures in Sweden, it is even more critical to understand where interventions are needed and at which scale, to implement effective policy. Thus, spatial context is incorporated into the analysis with the use of the multiscale geographically weighted regression (MGWR) model. A two-stage least squares (2SLS) model is employed in which two instrumental variables are utilised to instrument the proximity to the nearest bank branch in 2013. The MGWR results show that the geographical distance to the nearest bank branch has a negative association with new firm formation across all Swedish municipalities. The results also show that the relationship between the geographical distance to bank branches and new formation is not spatially varying across space. A policy implication from the analysis shows it is ideal to focus on the geographical accessibility to bank branches as it would continue to play an important role in the financing of new firms, regardless of the location.

  • The Affordable Care Act Medicaid expansion and interstate migration in
           border regions of US States

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract In the wake of the Affordable Care Act, some US states expanded Medicaid eligibility to low-income, working-age adults while others did not. This study investigates whether this divergence induces migration across state borders to obtain Medicaid, especially in border regions of expansion states. It compares border with interior regions’ in-migration in the concerned subgroup before and after the Medicaid expansion in linear probability difference-in-difference and triple difference regression frameworks. Using individual-level data from the American Community Surveys over 2012–2017, this study finds only a statistically significant increase in in-migration to border regions after the expansion in Arkansas. The differing results across states could stem from statistical power issues of the employed regression analysis but might also result from state peculiarities. In Arkansas, the odds of having migrated increase by about 48% in its border regions after the Medicaid expansion compared to before and control regions. If all additional migrants take up Medicaid, the number of Medicaid beneficiaries in these regions increases by approximately 4%. Thus, even if the induced migration is statistically significant, it appears unlikely to impose meaningful fiscal externalities at the regional level.

  • Distributing the European structural and investment funds from a
           conflicting claims approach

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract In order to support economic development across all European Union regions, €351.8 billion –almost a third of the total EU budget– has been set aside for the Cohesion Policy during the 2014–2020 period. The distribution of this budget is made through five main structural and investment funds, after long and difficult negotiations among the EU member states. This paper analyzes the problem of allocating the limited resources of the European Regional Development Fund as a conflicting claims problem. Specifically, we attempt to show how the conflicting claims approach fits this actual problem, and we propose alternative ways of distributing the budget via (i) claims solutions or (ii) the imposition of bounds (guarantees) to each of the regions. By applying this approach we also show that there is a claims solution that performs better than the others by reducing inequality and promoting convergence to a greater degree. It is clear that political bargaining will always be part of the allocation process. However, having an intuitive initial proposal may help politicians to find the best agreement. To that effect, we propose the use of a claims solution as a way to find an initial proposal for future policy changes concerning the allocations of the EU structural funds.

  • The dynamic general nesting spatial econometric model for spatial panels
           with common factors: Further raising the bar

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The dynamic general nesting spatial econometric model for spatial panels with common factors is the most advanced model currently available. It accounts for local spatial dependence by means of an endogenous spatial lag, exogenous spatial lags, and a spatial lag in the error term. It accounts for dynamic effects by means of the dependent variable lagged in time, and the dependent variable lagged in both space and time. Finally, it accounts for global cross-sectional dependence by means of cross-sectional averages or principal components with heterogeneous coefficients, which generalizes the traditional controls for time-invariant and spatial-invariant variables by unit-specific and time-specific effects. This paper provides an overview of the main arguments in favor of each of these model components, as well as some potential pitfalls.

  • Nighttime lights and wealth in very small areas:

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Nighttime lights observed from satellites are a widely accepted proxy measure for economic development. This is mainly based on cross-country evidence that finds strong correlations between lights and Gross Domestic Product. Yet, the evidence on the correlations at local levels is scarce, and it often relies on randomly sampled survey data. We contribute by enhancing the understanding of the relationship between light and development at local levels. First, we use complete (non-publicly available) census data from Namibia to evaluate the findings based on the randomly sampled Demographic and Health Surveys data. We find that the census data provides a stronger association between light and wealth at local levels. Second, we criticize the practice of aggregating light from buffers around survey cluster locations. Instead, we recommend aggregating data in grid cells, and studying the relationship in different grid sizes. In our study correlations based on grid cells remain significant from a 0.5 degree grid to the smallest 0.0083 degree grid (~1 km2) allowed by the nighttime light data. Third, we supplement the commonly used relative wealth index by using individual asset variables as proxies for the total stock of wealth. The stock variables reveal a significant association between changes in light and wealth which cannot be found using our relative wealth index. Altogether, our results show that nighttime lights provide an even stronger signal of economic development at local levels than the current survey-based results in the literature suggest.

  • Building a bridge over the valley of death' New pathways for
           innovation policy in structurally weak regions

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract We investigate if a regional policy shift by the federal state government of Saxony in 2007 enhanced the innovation performance of local SMEs compared to similar firms in other East German regions. From the perspective of innovation policy, the policy shift in Saxony is remarkable for its novel approach to overcome the so-called “valley of death” for innovative SMEs, which addresses the difficult transition from a scientific invention to its successful commercial exploitation. While public support to the design and development of market-ready new products and services together with their market launch is typically highly restricted by EU state aid law, Saxony’s novel innovation policy makes use of the EU’s de minimis principle. This principle permits unconditional public funding up to EUR 200,000 over three tax years. While such amounts cannot be expected to provide additional incentives for larger firms, however, de minimis-based funding may be an essential tool to foster innovation activities in SMEs. Our regional benchmarking approach based on micro data from the IAB Establishment Panel shows that micro and small firms in Saxony have become significantly more innovative than similar firms in other East German regions after the introduction of the novel policy in 2007. Our findings suggest that this new pathway to an SME-focused, close-to-the-market innovation policy may be a promising blueprint for EU innovation policy in structurally weak regions.

  • Sorting in an urban housing market—is there a response to
           demographic change'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Using Dortmund as a case study we analyse whether rents and housing prices responded to local demographic change in a German city between 2007 and 2016. In a two-step analysis based on a spatial autoregressive hedonic pricing model and a discrete choice model of housing location we find that during the study period as a whole, higher local mortality induced a negative effect on apartment prices and rents. Yet, the neighbourhood effects of local ageing vary across sub-city districts. Most prominently, the study period was characterised by a strong and rising desire to purchase or rent housing in the vicinity of the city centre. Furthermore, prices for owner-occupied apartments and houses increased rapidly in the more well-off southern part of the city and particularly in a previously declining community, where a large-scale urban regeneration and environmental upgrading project has been implemented since 2011. The characteristics of households likely to move to this neighbourhood switched from low to high income.

  • Solving the restructuring problems of (former) old industrial regions with
           smart specialization' Conceptual thoughts and evidence from the Ruhr

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract (Former) old industrial regions are a specific kind of lagging regions that suffer from long-term restructuring problems and deindustrialization. They are back in the focus of many researchers as well as media observers, because of the rise of populist parties in many of these regions in North America and Europe. Therefore, new policy options are discussed in the literature. In this paper, we critically discuss the effects of smart specialization as the most recent regional policy strategy in Europe on solving the restructuring problems and deindustrialization in (former) old industrial regions and we illustrate our analysis with a view on the Ruhr in Germany. Since smart specialization focuses on existing endogenous potential and entrepreneurial discovery processes from the region, vested interests in (former) old industrial regions might hinder necessary restructuring. Although potentially path transformation might be fostered in some cases, overall, smart specialization is certainly not a quick fix for solving long-term negative effects of restructuring and deindustrialization in (former) old industrial regions.

  • Simultaneous consideration of spatial heterogeneity and spatial
           autocorrelation in European innovation: a spatial econometric approach
           based on the MGWR-SAR estimation

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The paper focuses on a simultaneous consideration of both spatial heterogeneity and spatial autocorrelation in the context of European regional innovation activities. A new class of data generating processes, the Mixed Geographically Weighted Regression—Spatial Autoregressive model, is the main instrument of the analysis. We deal with 220 European regions, and the components of the Regional Innovation Scoreboard 2019 are the basis of the analysis. Patent Cooperation Treaty applications are used as a measure of innovation output, and Scientific publications among the top-10% most cited publications worldwide, Research & Development expenditure in the business sector, Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises introducing product or process innovations and Human resources in science and technology are included as innovation inputs. The main research hypothesis is that there are spatial innovation spillovers among the European regions. Changes in innovation inputs in a specific region affect the patent applications not only in this region but these changes might also significantly impact neighbouring regions. At the same time, we assume that the effects of changes in innovation inputs differ across regions, mainly between regions belonging to the top innovators and lagging regions. The results indicate that a spatial differentiation of the model parameters and spatial spillovers matter for innovation output. We detect significant differences between advanced and lagging regions. Therefore, heterogeneous responses to regional policy measures should be considered, and it is necessary to apply a more individual approach to the regional development of innovation activities.

  • Prerequisites and initial developments for economic specialization in
           lagging regions—A study of specialized villages in Iran

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Although the literature provides a huge number of studies on specialized regions, such as clusters and industrial districts, most of them concern developed regions. Studies that focus on the initial processes and preconditions for the emergence of economic specialization in lagging regions are rare, and studies of this kind considering a large number of cases not existing. We use the information on 140 villages in lagging rural regions in Iran to examine the initializing processes and preconditions as well as the connection between the two. We find that the conditions that are present in the region affect the potential initial processes and developments that might lead to specialization. Thus, the findings support the application of place-based policies.

  • Recruitment of scarce competences to rural regions: Policy perspectives

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This paper studies the perceived difficulty of recruiting scarce competencies to rural regions. Furthermore, the role of policy in facilitating and enhancing recruitment to and better skills matching in rural regions is discussed. Based on a survey targeted to the business sections of Swedish municipalities, the results show that recruitment is perceived to be difficult in both rural and nonrural regions and that the difficulty of recruiting for the right skills results in a lack of skills matching and constitutes an obstacle to growth. Rural regions located close to urban areas can to some extent mitigate these recruitment problems, and their locations pose less of a barrier in recruitment processes compared to those of remotely located rural regions. Which policies can help remedy recruitment problems faced in rural regions' In both rural and nonrural regions, incentives for writing off student debt and relocation support for accompanying persons and tandem recruitment are perceived to be the most promising policies. Rural regions are more receptive to the implementation of such policies. Finally, the need for flexibility and policies that can be adapted to the regional demand for labour are stressed.

  • Determinants of cross-border co-patents: empirical evidence from
           45 European regions

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Innovation processes are often interactive because the actors involved require complementary knowledge assets. Given the potentially lower institutional proximity (in terms of language, culture and formal regulations) when compared to domestic counterparts, cross-border interactive innovation processes between actors are less likely to occur. However, these processes are important for firms and (cross-border) regions to ensure economic growth and competitiveness in the long term. In addition, cross-border interactive innovation processes provide opportunities to enhance creative potentials through the combination of knowledge generated in different (national) innovation systems. By simultaneously exploring the effects of institutional proximity, technological proximity, spatial distance and European integration, this paper further enriches the literature. Negative binomial gravity models give insight into the reasons for differences in the number of generated co-patents in 45 European cross-border regions. As expected, spatial and technological distance have negative impacts on co-patent activities in all models. Sharing a common official language (i.e., institutional proximity) significantly increases the number of cross-border co-patents ceteris paribus by a factor of 1.83 to 2.49. Further (qualitative) research is, however, necessary to concretely determine the underlying language effects and to isolate these from cultural factors. Surprisingly, the results also reveal that, ceteris paribus, length of EU membership exerts a significant negative effect on co-patenting, whereas belonging to ‘Central and Eastern European Countries’ has a significant positive effect on co-patenting. Consequently, cross-border regions of the founding EU member states are relatively and ceteris paribus less involved in cross-border co-patenting activities than their Eastern European counterparts.

  • The effect of hazard shock and disclosure information on property and land
           prices: a machine-learning assessment in the case of Japan

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The occurrence of 6.7-magnitude Hokkaido Eastern Iburi Earthquake on 6th September 2018 made local residents in Japan realise the underneath hazardous threat to their own safety and residential dwellings. Japan has faced various natural disasters for a long time, and Government chose to unveil these hazard data in details to the public to raise every one’s alertness. Despite their long-term awareness of hazards, this short-term unexpected event should have impact on local real estate markets. Given the transaction data of properties and lands, this study used machine-learning algorithms to examine whether the unexpected hazard shock (i.e. 2018 Hokkaido Earthquake) or the observed local hazard information in geographic areas (i.e. long-term evaluation of each real estate) would be capitalised into the prices of residential properties and lands in the case of Hokkaido, Japan. It is assumed that the difference in the characteristics of disaster notification would alter individuals’ risk perception and thus the evaluation of properties; compared to uncertain, infrequent occurrence of earthquakes in the unknown future (i.e. beyond the scope of objective estimation), the release of long-term hazardous information (tied to each property or land), which is more perceivable in near future, is more likely to be capitalised into real estate. It is found that housing/land attributes are still the key features to real estate values in Hokkaido. In comparison with short-term unexpected hazard shock (i.e. 2018 Earthquake), the long-term hazard threats are more influential to prices of properties and lands. This is possibly due to people’s awareness of the hazard conditions of local communities while deciding where to reside.

  • Unlocking the black box: A comprehensive meta-analysis of the main
           determinants of within-region income inequality

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Regional income inequality is a topic of increasing relevance worldwide that has received considerable scientific attention. However, a clear-cut, comprehensive view has yet to be put forward of the main determinants of regional income inequality. Indeed, the extant empirical literature on the topic has reported differing results. Thus, this study develops a comprehensive meta-analysis using 33 comparable empirical studies spanning 29 years of research, involving 28 main determinants of which the most frequently mentioned were regional development, human capital, manufacturing/industry share, unemployment, financial development, and trade openness. After adjusting for publication bias and heterogeneity in the results reported by the primary studies, we conclude that the not very frequently addressed institutional related determinants (financial development, fiscal policies and public sector size), substantially contribute to reduce within-region income inequality, particularly in lower-income settings. In a smaller extent, human capital and trade openness also mitigate within-region income inequality. Region level of development, urbanization and, in a lesser extent, technological intensity aggravate within-region income inequality.
