In the last two decades, considerable progress has been made in the development of more sophisticated models of urban and regional economies. It is not merely the expansion in the number of equations or variables, the innovations in solution algorithms or the ease with which large-scale systems can now be solved that has characterized this development. Rather, the extensions that are the most striking seem to be those exploring new and imaginative ways of linking together what had otherwise been separate models or modules into a more comprehensive system of relationships. The primary contributions here have clearly been the links between demographic and economic models and the rapid development in the application of computable general equilibrium models to regional and interregional systems of economies.
