dc.description.abstractThe paper outlines a static equilibrium model, which analyses the economic developmentin a two-country case by considering interregional migration in R&D-sectors. The effectsof migration and firm decisions on both industrial agglomeration and economic developmentwill be shown: lock-in-effects and free market entry will lead to a concentration offirms. In addition, the consideration of fundamental and secondary research activity leads to ahigher number of firms and products by means of cost reduction and spillover effects. Theresulting demand of unskilled and skilled labor will be met by sectoral and interregionalmigration. This reinforces the concentration of economic activity and leads to a higher degreeof specialization and economic development.The formation of single equilibria is shown under consideration of exogenous shocks: diminishingtransportation cost will turn economies, originally equally endowed and with the sameeconomic structure, to spatial concentration and uneven economic development.en_US
