Trade and Geography Conference

March 30, 2017

Cambridge, MA

Stephen Redding and Esteban Rossi-Hansberg

The endogenous location of economic agents relative to one another in space influences their consumption, production and investment decisions. It affects their pattern and volume of trade, the markets that they participate in, and the way they organize production processes across locations. As such, geography shapes the impact of local, regional, industry, and aggregate shocks, and the effects of national and local policies.

This one-day conference will draw together researchers interested in these topics from any perspective including, but not limited to, international trade, regional and urban economics, labor economics, public finance, and macroeconomics. Both empirical and theoretical research, and combinations, are welcome.
