The asymmetric geographical distribution of monetary actions is a big problem all over the world and in addition for the eu Union. In Krugman’s New fiscal Geography monetary structures have an easy spatial constitution. This ebook indicates that extra refined versions should still visualise the european as an evolving alternate community with a selected topology and assorted aggregation degrees. on the optimum point, financial geography versions supply a poultry eye’s view of spatial dynamics. At a medium point, associations form the economic system and the constitution of (financial and labour) markets. on the lowest point, person judgements have interaction with the commercial, social and institutional setting; the focal point is on businesses’ determination on situation and innovation. Such multilevel types show complicated dynamic styles – course dependence, cumulative causation, hysteresis – on a community constitution; and particular analytic instruments are priceless for learning strategic interplay, heterogeneity and nonlinearities.

2 The building up of a manageable multiregional model, where the number of regions is finite but not limited to a small number, represents one of the research frontiers of the NEG paradigm (see Fujita and Thisse 2009). Recent attempts in this direction are those by Akamatsu and Takayama (2009), Bosker et al. (2010), Ikeda et al. (2010, 2012), Akamatsu et al. (2012). 18 P. Commendatore et al. 1 Basic Assumptions We consider an economy characterised by R regions (region r goes from 1 to R). There are two sectors, agriculture A and manufacturing M .

A third approach put forward by Bosker et al. (2010) can be considered a generalisation of the first two. Indeed, these authors adopts Puga (1999) set-up whose general cost function includes the SN and VL models as special cases (SNVL). Finally, other authors use the utility function suggested by Pflüger (2004) [Quasilinear logarithmic (QLL) model] in which the upper-tier is quasi linear with a logarithmic component concerning the N manufactured goods; whereas the lowertier is still a CES. In the second class of models, instead, reducing trade costs has the opposite effect with dispersion forces prevailing over agglomeration forces.

7 Note, however, that they do not consider stability issues in the social planner solution. 46 P. Commendatore et al. analysis in these frameworks. Also, the lack of a missing representative agent in many NEG models and thus distributive issues further complicate the analysis. In particular, the utility level of the immobile workers left behind in the periphery is lower than the utility level in the core region. The use of an appropriate social welfare function thus becomes a fundamental issue.
