  • About the Edition

    We quantify agglomeration spillovers by estimating the impact of the opening of a large new manufacturing plant on the total factor productivity (TFP) of incumbent plants in the same county. Articles in the corporate real estate journal SITE SELECTION reveal the county where the Million Dollar Plant ultimately chose to locate (the winning county), as well as the one or two runner-up counties (the losing counties). The incumbent plants in the losing counties are used as a counterfactual for the TFP of incumbent plants in winning counties in the absence of the plant opening. Incumbent plants in winning and losing counties have economically and statistically similar trends in TFP in the 7 years before the opening, which supports the validity of the identifying assumption. After the new plant opening, incumbent plants in winning counties experience a sharp relative increase in TFP. Five years after the opening, TFP of incumbent plants in winning counties is 12% higher than TFP of incumbent plants in losing counties. Consistent with some theories of agglomeration, this effect is larger for incumbent plants that share similar labor and technology pools with the new plant. We also find evidence of a relative increase in skill-adjusted labor costs in winning counties, indicating that the ultimate effect on profits is smaller than the direct increase in productivity. Keywords: agglomeration, spillovers, TFP, total factor productivity, network effects, externalities, social interactions, local competition for firms, urban development.

While some of this concentration is explained by the presence of natural ad-vantages that constrain specic productions to specic locations, Ellison.

Identifying Agglomeration Spillovers: Evidence from Million Dollar Plants We quantify agglomeration spillovers by estimating how the productivity of incumbent manufacturing plants in a county varies when a new plant opens in that county. To do so we augment standard Cobb-Douglas production functions for incumbent establishments by allowing.

We quantify agglomeration spillovers by comparing changes in total factor productivity (TFP) among incumbent plants in winning counties that attracted a large manufacturing plant and losing counties that were the new plant's runnerup choice.

ble: TZ: :. Despite the importance of agglomeration externalities in theoretical work, evidence for their nature, scale, and scope remains elusive, particularly in developing countries.

Identification of productivity spillovers between firms is a challenging task, and estimation typically requires, at a minimum, panel data, which are often not available in. Abstract. We quantify agglomeration spillovers by comparing changes in total factor productivity (TFP) among incumbent plants in "winning" counties that attracted a large manufacturing plant and "losing" counties that were the new plant's runner-up choice.

Winning and losing counties have similar trends in TFP prior to the new plant opening. We quantify agglomeration spillovers by estimating the impact of the opening of a large manufacturing plant on the total factor productivity (TFP) of incumbent plants in the same county.

We use the location rankings of profit-maximizing firms to compare incumbent plants in the county where the new plant ultimately chose to locate (the âœwinning countyâ), with incumbent plants in the runner-up county.

We estimate the local agglomeration spillovers from research university activity in a sample of urban counties. We use the fact that universities follow a rigid endowment spending policy based on the market value of their endowments to identify the causal effect of university activity on labor income in the non-education sector.

In the previous article I began to unpack Identifying Agglomeration Spillovers by Greenstone, Hornbeck, and Moretti found in the Journal of Political Economy.

There are parallels to church planting that are worth considering. Greenstone, Hornbeck, and Moretti identify five possible reasons for agglomeration in cities.

Technology spillovers and agglomeration are critical issues in regional economic development. The presence of geographically localized spillovers in a region attracts firms and thereby leads to a higher level of agglomeration.

On the other hand, the agglomeration of firms facilitates localized spillovers through local innovation networks.

In this chapter we use firm-level data from the Greek manufacturing sector to identify how three features of economic geography spatial heterogeneity, spatial proximity and spatial concentration influence the size and sign of intra- and inter-industry FDI spillovers.

We find that FDI spillovers predominantly materialise at the sub-national level, with horizontal spillovers being more. 4.

The spillovers perspective complements previous work, which has emphasized di erences in mean earnings and in exibility. 4 The di erential policy implications of the viral and foundational views suggest a real need for empirical work separating them.

One approach to identifying founda-tional skills is simply to test for cross-skill spillovers. Thus, we are better able to identify the spatial locations of clusters at various scales, such as a half mile, 1 mile, 5 miles, and more. Assigning patents and citations to these clusters, we capture the geographic extent of knowledge spillovers within them.

Greenstone, Hornbeck, and Moretti identify five possible reasons for agglomeration in cities. I will list them and then unpack their relevance for church planting in gentrified urban neighborhoods.

First, it is possible that firms (and workers) are attracted to areas with high concentration of other firms (and other workers) by the size of the.

Remarkably, a small fraction of firms account for most of the job and output creation in high-income and developing countries alike. Does this imply that the path to enabling more economic dynamism lies in selectively targeting high-potential firms?

Or would pursuing broad-based reforms that minimize distortions be more effective? Inspired by these questions, this book presents new evidence .
