  • Growth and Innovation through Urban-Rural Partnership
  • Economic growth ; Innovation ; Rural-urban relations ; Spatial dynamics
  • Urban-rural partnerships are an important element for spatial development. They provide a way to combine growth and balancing policy and they enable peripheral and economically weak areas to participate in growth and innovation. But this will only
  • work if all parts contribute with their potentials to economic growth. The idea is evident; nevertheless, there are still open questions on how to achieve these goals. - (IfL)

  • Zipf’s Law and Canadian urban growth
  • Canada ; Spatial analysis ; Spatial autocorrelation ; Spatial dependence ; Spatial structure ; Urban growth ; Urban hierarchy ; Urban system
  • This article examines Zipf’s Law and Canadian urban growth. It appears that the dynamics of growth follow a deterministic process related to existing urban size, previous growth and spatial structure. Splitting the Canadian urban system into two
  • —east and west— permits the identification of differences that were not observable when studying the country as a whole. While size and previous growth are still important explanatory variables of growth patterns, these two systems may be distinguished
  • one from the other from the point of view of spatial patterns of distribution of growth rates.

  • Urbanization and economic growth in Indonesia : good news, bad news and (possible) local government mitigation
  • Economic development ; Economic growth ; Gross domestic product ; Indonesia ; Infrastructure ; Population growth ; Public expenditure ; Role of the State ; Urban population ; Urbanization
  • Time-series analysis for Indonesia over the period 1960–2009 suggests that the level of urbanization is positively associated with economic growth but that the rate of change of urbanization is nega-tively correlated with growth of economic output
  • . A sub-national dynamic panel investigation provides additional evidence of the positive and negative level and rate effects, respectively. The panel analysis also implies that the harmful impact of urban population growth is linked to insufficient local
  • public infrastructure spending. Local governments that invest more heavily in infrastructure are better able to cope with the apparent detrimental effects of rapid urbanization on economic growth.

  • Sasaki generalizes the urban-growth control model developed by Bruekner and Lai, and concludes that the optimal urban-growth control is less (more) stringent than the B-L model when an agglomeration effect (public-good-provision effect
  • ) is considered. The paper proves that the optimal urban-growth control may or may not be more stringent than the B-L model when the agglomeration effect or (and) the public-good-provision effect is (are) considered. This result sharply differs from
