AbstracttitleThe linkages between agglomeration and growth. A study for Argentina
Coco-authored with A. Daniela Cristina, Valeria Blanco, Iván Iturralde, Marcelo Capello
ShortabstractThis paper analyses the linkages between agglomeration and economic growth in the Argentinean provinces for the period 1981-2007 using both pooled and panel data estimates. The results are consistent across agglomeration proxies, control variables and estimation techniques. The effects of agglomeration on growth would increase with income, suggesting the presence of a Reverse Williamson Hypothesis. Therefore, Argentinean provinces with a high income level would benefit more from economic concentration than those in an earlier stage of development.
