  1. 1. On Specifying and Estimating Economic Growth as a Spatial Process : Convergence, Inequality, and Migration

    Author : Martin E. Gustafsson; Roger Bivand; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Social and economic geography; Economic geography; economic growth; regional convergence; migration; spatial statistics; spatially correlated errors; geographical dependence; Kulturgeografi; Human geography; Kulturgeografi; kulturgeografi; Social and Economic Geography;

    Abstract : This thesis includes three self-contained papers. The first paper considers the effect of geographically dependent observations on cross-sectional growth convergence and proposes a way of decomposing the level of technology taking into account geographical variation in growth rates.

  2. 2. Continuity and Change : Essays on path-dependence in economic geography and good food

    Author : Pepijn Olders; Dominic Power; Henrik Mattsson; Anders Malmberg; Andrés Rodríguez-Pose; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; path dependence; continuity; change; expert opinion; economic geography; restaurants; low-emission vehicles; PDO PGI labels;

    Abstract : How can it be, that in our rapidly changing world certain things remain recognisably the same for such a long time? This dissertation is concerned with the economic geography of path-dependence and seeks to explain selected everyday examples of continuity and change. How can French restaurants and chefs be successful for decades despite changes in taste? Why are cars powered by fossil fuels still around while there are many novel and cleaner alternatives? What explains the re-invention of local food products in spite of the influx of many new products from around the world? These are the question this dissertation tries to explain as spatial expressions of ‘path-dependence’. READ MORE
