Presentation material for William Strange's lecture presented at the Treasury.

Abstract

Economic activity is distributed unevenly across space. A range of forces are involved in the process by which agglomeration affects productivity. This presentation will discuss modern approaches to Marshallian agglomeration economies in labor, input, and knowledge markets. It will also consider the implications of agglomeration economies for real estate markets, including both housing markets and the construction of tall buildings.
