Modelling firms’ location and cluster development

  • Mario A. Maggioni
Part of the Contributions to Economics book series (CE)


The second chapter of this thesis has shown the empirical relevance of high-tech clusters in four advanced countries, the third has presented a survey of different streams of literature which have directly dealt with, or that can be profitably used to analyse, the agglomeration dynamic and the emergence of spatial concentration of industries. This chapter is devoted to the elaboration of a new theoretical mod-elling framework able to explain, on the one hand, the location process of firms and, on the other, the development process of industrial clusters.
