Geography, Trade, and Growth

This workshop is focused on the interplay between economic geography, trade in products and production factors, and their relationship to economic growth. It is a continuation the one organized in 2017 under the same title, which counted with the participation of prominent scholars from all around the world, including Reka Juhasz (Columbia), Diego Puga (CEMFI), Esteban Rossi-Hansberg (Princeton) and Thomas Sampson (LSE), among others.

We encourage submissions of theoretical and empirical papers addressing issues including (but not limited to):

  • The causes and consequences of the spatial distribution of economic activity
  • The evolution of economic geography in response to globalization
  • The interaction between trade, geography and growth
  • The effects of technological change and trade on the global organization of production
  • The political economy of trade, growth and spatial misallocation
