  • Regional poverty and infection disease: early exploratory evidence from
           the COVID-19 pandemic

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This paper examines the role of regional poverty on the COVID-19 pandemic in the USA. It also explores how the effects differ with the concentration of ethnic minorities. We find that poverty is a significant and consistent determinant of higher COVID-19 infections and fatalities. Prevalent poverty areas experienced higher infections due to economic structure that require hypermobility (high mobility and interpersonal interaction)—more physical human to human contact resulting in higher deaths from limited access to health services. These are also regions where minority groups are concentrated. Disproportionate infections and fatalities occurred within the black, Hispanic, and Asian population. Our evidence is robust to state fixed effects that capture local COVID-19 mitigation policies, multi-level hierarchical modeling, spatial autoregressive assessment, and large sets of county-level health, social, and economic factors. This paper contributes to the literature on health and economic disparities and their resulting consequences for infectious diseases.

  • Industrial transformations and regional inequalities in Europe

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: An important channel through which less developed European countries have grown over the past twenty years is through the industrial transformation of their economies from low to higher value-added activities. The aim of the paper is to address the role of industrial transformation on regional imbalances, by analysing the different components of industrial productivity dynamics, namely the industrial composition, competition and reallocation effects. Based on both a shift-share analysis and a simulation analysis, the paper shows that the reallocation towards higher value-added sectors in Central and Eastern European (CEE) countries could in fact lead to higher regional inequalities. Our empirical results lead us to claim that short-term normative interventions should go in the direction of supporting “modern and technologically advanced traditional sectors” rather than necessarily pushing CEE countries towards a high value-added industry specialization.

  • Spatial spillovers and the productivity-compensation gap in the United
           States

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Rising inequality in the US, and resulting economic and wage stagnation, has been attributed to the growing productivity-compensation gap. Academics and policy makers have puzzled over the source of the gap since the 1970s. We hypothesize that the observed gap is misleading because productivity spillovers only partially translate into increased compensation. We analyze productivity spillovers with a spatial dimension, such that the industrial productivity of one state spills over to that of contiguous states. To do so, we employ a unique data set and spatial econometric techniques, including a spatial two-stage least squares instrumental variable approach and the spatially lagged X framework. The data set includes state-level industry panel data on employment, compensation, and gross industrial output for sixty-six industries within the forty-eight continental US states from 1998 to 2017. Once we account for productivity spillovers within industries, the gap between labor compensation and productivity narrows significantly.

  • Will the economic growth benefit public health' Health vulnerability,
           urbanization and COVID-19 in the USA

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Economic growth has a significant impact on health vulnerability primarily through the process of urbanization. This paper conducts a pioneer study by analyzing the impact of regional economic growth and urbanization on the public health vulnerability in the 51 states and territories of the USA from 2011 to 2018 with a fixed-effect panel data regression model. We construct an epidemiological vulnerability index (EVI) using regional smoking, diabetes, obesity, and hypertension, collect CDC social vulnerability index (SVI) as state-level public health vulnerability status, and use COVID-19 to test the actual effect of health vulnerability. The preliminary results show that higher regional economic growth is related to lower EVI and SVI, while urbanization is positively associated with regional health vulnerability and the severity of COVID-19 from case rate and death rate. Robustness check with unemployment shows the same result. We conclude that economic growth is related to lower public health vulnerability, and urbanization has negative public health benefits. Our finding indicates an urgent need to balance the externalities generated by economic development and urbanization trends on public health vulnerability by promoting reasonable medical resource distribution, health practices and safety, improving social and environmental justice, and other health management measures.

  • Air pollution and income inequality: a spatial econometric approach

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This study re-examines the relationship between income inequality and emission in US counties, incorporating multiple measures for pollution and income inequality. The initial results show that a nonlinear relationship exists between emissions and income. Effects estimates from the spatial Durbin model show that inequality has no significant impact on SO2 emissions although a concave relationship exists between income, SO2, and CO emissions. Increased income inequality reduces CO, PM2.5, and NOx emissions for two of the three measures of inequality. The cubic term for income in the PM 2.5 specification reveals that pollution eventually increases as income rises. Our results indicate that income inequality reduces air pollution emissions for localized pollutants but has no impact of pollutants that are more geographically dispersed.

  • The great recession and job loss spillovers: impact of tradable employment
           shocks on supporting services

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This paper explores the spillover effects of job losses via input–output linkages during the Great Recession. Exploiting exogenous variation in tradable employment shocks across US counties, the paper finds that job losses in a county’s tradable industries cause further job losses in the county’s supporting services. A 10% exogenous decline in tradable employment reduces supporting industries’ employment by 3.1%. In addition, a county’s regional supporting services are relatively less affected by its tradable job losses than its local supporting services, reinforcing the argument that the spillovers are due to input–output linkages.

  • Fiscal decentralization, regional disparity, and the role of corruption

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In this study, we examine how efforts taken by states to combat corruption act as a mediator in the relationship between fiscal decentralization and regional income disparities. Fiscal decentralization may affect regional disparities via access to funding, but corruption could limit the ability to efficiently transfer fiscal resources. India is one of the most decentralized nations of the world and also exhibits high regional disparities. Under this scenario, we estimate whether institutions, in the form of anti-corruption efforts by the states, interact with fiscal decentralization and affect divergence across states of India. We find that fiscal decentralization reduces the disparity across states, and the effect of fiscal decentralization is stronger under efforts to control corruption by state vigilance bodies. The results are robust across different specifications of fiscal decentralization and alternate estimation methods accounting for endogeneity. From the policy perspective, in order to harness the potential benefits of decentralization to reduce regional income disparities, governments should focus on improving the quality of institutions through control on corruption at the sub-national level.

  • Piped water supply and usage and the question of services of general
           interest: a spatial panel data analysis

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The services of general interest (SGI) hold an important place in relation to the European model of society, referring to general functions and objectives that are essential for the implementation of fundamental citizen rights and for the accomplishment of economic, social and territorial cohesion goals. SGI reflect the obligation of public authorities to provide them at certain standards in terms of quality, availability, accessibility and affordability. Besides the socio-economic dimension involved in these discussions, which envisages the provision of SGI to everyone, the territorial dimension has to be considered too, as it emphasises the provision of SGI everywhere. In this paper, the inquiry into the piped water consumption differentiates between households and firms. We explored the territorial dimension of this topic by means of various spatial panel models, which account for the spatial effects emerging via cooperation, imitation or cross-country spillovers in neighbour regions. Given the characteristics of the geographic, social and economic factors envisaged in our research, we hypothesised significant spatial influences among counties; therefore, the spatial panel is the appropriate way to avoid misspecification problems related to the estimation and interpretation of the standard (non-spatial) panel data model. It is applied in the specific case of Romania that is highly relevant in terms of availability and accessibility criteria, considering the amplitude of territorial disparities not only between regions but also between urban and rural environments, in a country with more than 43% of its population living in rural areas, still lagging behind when it comes to the basic infrastructure necessary for a decent standard of living.

  • One size does not fit all: evaluating the impact of microenterprise
           measurement on policy evaluation

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Researchers and economic development practitioners regard microenterprises (MEs) as pivotal actors for economic development, poverty alleviation, and job creation. Notwithstanding the importance of MEs in the economy, there is no consistent definition of MEs, and thus, there is no consensus on the appropriate measurement and criteria that should be used to evaluate MEs formation. Two of the most commonly accepted standards criteria to determine MEs are the number of employees and total annual revenues. Although there is a growing body of research conducted on ME formation using the employment criteria to determine the firm size, fewer studies have used the revenue criteria. These criteria will be compared in a regional activity model at different units of geographic scale (state, county, and census tract level) using data from US businesses. Results suggest that there are no statistically significant changes in the estimated model when the criteria are changed for the same geographic unit of scale. However, for the same criteria (employment-based or revenue-based), a change in the unit of geographic aggregation produces different and sometimes contradictory results. These results imply that evaluations of MEs and their factors are more sensitive to scale than to criteria, raising awareness that for proper program evaluation, the unit of data aggregation matters.

  • Spatial machine learning: new opportunities for regional science

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This paper is a methodological guide to using machine learning in the spatial context. It provides an overview of the existing spatial toolbox proposed in the literature: unsupervised learning, which deals with clustering of spatial data, and supervised learning, which displaces classical spatial econometrics. It shows the potential of using this developing methodology, as well as its pitfalls. It catalogues and comments on the usage of spatial clustering methods (for locations and values, both separately and jointly) for mapping, bootstrapping, cross-validation, GWR modelling and density indicators. It provides details of spatial machine learning models, which are combined with spatial data integration, modelling, model fine-tuning and predictions to deal with spatial autocorrelation and big data. The paper delineates “already available” and “forthcoming” methods and gives inspiration for transplanting modern quantitative methods from other thematic areas to research in regional science.

           relationship

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This review article sheds a light on the complex and hitherto under-researched relationship between geography and entrepreneurship. This relationship is considered to be interdependent. Both directions are discussed. The paper also describes the perspectives of both academic disciplines involved in regional entrepreneurship research, namely (geographically sensitive) economics and management studies on the one hand, and economic geography on the other. Based on a comprehensive overview of the theoretical and empirical literature on regional entrepreneurship, several research gaps are identified that could be helpful for designing future research. Some have strong relevance for government policy, which has recently paid much more attention to entrepreneurship than in the past (e.g. related to the entrepreneurial ecosystem approach), but which rather rarely has been considered in academic evaluations so far. This paper ends with a suggestion for an agenda for future regional entrepreneurship research. Digital transformation with its potential for a disruptive transformation of economies and societies will provide an excellent and, of course, a currently not well-understood research field for regional entrepreneurship research.

           growth across European regions

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This paper investigates the role played by the position of European regions in research networks on their rate of innovation and economic growth. The analysis is based on a panel of EU-28 NUTS2 regions participating in EU Framework Programmes observed over the 2004–2014 period. We find that regions that are more central in the network (higher strength centrality) and those that are surrounded by highly inter-connected regions (higher clustering index) show higher rates of innovation and higher economic growth. We also find heterogeneous effects of centrality and clustering for peripheral and central regions. We conclude that a more interconnected network (an increase in centrality for peripheral regions and of clustering for urban areas) would create benefits both at the periphery and at the core of Europe.

  • Public input and business tax competition in local communities in Brazil

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Previous works emphasize the role of tax rates as the key feature of tax competition. This paper brings into attention how local jurisdictions consider the level of public provision in infrastructure and the business tax rates as strategic complements to compete for capital. We use a spatial Durbin model to estimate the impact of a change in the public infrastructure of a particular jurisdiction on one’s own and on their neighbors’ business tax rates. Using data for approximately 5,000 municipalities in Brazil over a seven-year period, our main findings indicate that local governments reactions to tax rate reductions from neighboring jurisdictions are associated in three possible ways: also decreasing their effective tax rates, increasing their public infrastructure spending, or combining both strategies.

      Abstract: This paper presents an empirical study of spatial origin and destination effects of European regional FDI dyads. Recent regional studies primarily focus on locational determinants, but ignore bilateral origin- and intervening factors, as well as associated spatial dependence. This paper fills this gap by using observations on interregional FDI flows within a spatially augmented Poisson interaction model. We explicitly distinguish FDI activities between three different stages of the value chain. Our results provide important insights on drivers of regional FDI activities, both from origin and destination perspectives. We moreover show that spatial dependence plays a key role in both dimensions.

  • Natural amenities and skill sorting in rural communities: a case study of
           land conservation policy

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Recent research finds evidence that improvements in rural natural amenities can increase median household income in communities close to the amenities. In this paper, a simple theoretical model is sketched out as an explanation of a hypothesized underlying mechanism: improvement in natural amenities can induce skill sorting across rural communities. Using community-level data in the state of Oregon before and after a large federal land conservation program was implemented, we test this hypothesis along with several competing mechanisms. Our empirical results support the hypothesized mechanism of amenity-induced skill sorting. Other mechanisms like the out-migration of the low-income population and the in-migration of the elderly population are not supported. The findings are important for policy discussions about land conservation, development and their distributional impacts.

  • Aspects of income inequality in a creative region

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: We analyze a stylized creative region’s economy. There are two goods (consumption and creative capital) and creative class members differ in their income generating abilities. The distribution of abilities in the creative class population is such that the median ability is less than the average ability. There is a proportional income tax rate and all tax revenues are redistributed to the creative class members by the regional authority (RA) with a uniform, lump-sum transfer. In this setting, we perform four tasks. First, we determine the tax rate that maximizes the lump-sum transfer. Second, we show that income equality requires the tax rate to equal unity and that the poorest creative class member is better off with a lower tax rate and hence more inequality. Third, given the \(ith\) creative class member’s preference over the tax rate and the transfer, we ascertain the tax rate that will be chosen by majority voting. Finally, we discuss the connection between increasing inequality and the majority chosen tax rate.

      Abstract: Using the data on venture capital investment in China and high-speed railway (HSR) construction as a natural experiment, this study presents empirical evidence about the impact of transportation infrastructure on capital mobility. The study finds that one new HSR train serving a city increases venture capital inflow to and outflow from that city by 1.0% and 1.6%, respectively. The heterogeneous analyses indicate that small cities, high-tech industries, and younger firms are significantly affected by HSR connections, which show that the accelerated information transmission and investors’ incremental growth expectations may account for the observed effect.

  • Study on Treatment Effects and Spatial Spillover Effects of
           Beijing–Shanghai HSR on the cities along the line

      Abstract: This paper investigates the influence of Beijing–Shanghai high-speed rail (HSR) on regional economy and its spatial spillover effect along this line. Several forms of spatial difference-in-difference (SDID) models are used to analyze the night light data and other socio-economic data from 47 prefecture-level cities in China from 2005 to 2013. The results show that Beijing–Shanghai HSR significantly promoted economic growth of HSR cities compared with adjacent non-HSR cities. At the same time, the impacts of Beijing–Shanghai HSR on HSR cities propagate to other adjacent cities, promoting the economic growth of these cities. The opening of Beijing–Shanghai HSR also increased spatial spillover effect on the overall region along the line.

  • Market fragmentation and the rise of sub-national regulation

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The evaluation of the Single European Market requires a better knowledge of the level of integration both between and within the EU countries. While some institutions are pushing for greater integration between EU countries, others may be introducing—purposely or collaterally—additional barriers to interaction. Several reports have reported the high levels of market fragmentation prevailing within Spain. This paper aims to determine whether regional borders influenced the patterns of intra- and interregional trade between the 18 regions of Spain (Nuts 2) over a long period of time (1995–2017). While trade is more intense within regions than between them, our results suggest the presence of spatial and temporal heterogeneity in the estimated home bias. We also investigate empirically the effect that the quantity and quality of national, regional and local regulations have on the economic performance of firms, in both the industrial and the service sectors. We use different non-spatial and spatial-gravity models, which yield robust results.
