Handbook of Regional Growth and Development Theories

Revised and Extended Second Edition

Edited by Roberta Capello and Peter Nijkamp

Regional economics – an established discipline for several decades – has undergone a period of rapid change in the last ten years resulting in the emergence of several new perspectives. At the same time the methodology of regional economics has also experienced some surprising developments. This fully revised and updated Handbook brings together contributions looking at new pathways in regional economics, written by many well-known international scholars. The aim is to present the most cutting-edge theories explaining regional growth and local development. The authors highlight the recent advances in theories, the normative potentialities of these theories and the cross-fertilization of ideas between regional and mainstream economists. It will be an essential source of reference and information for both scholars and students in the field.

Chapter 23: CGE modeling in space: a survey

Kieran P. Donaghy


This chapter surveys a broad swathe of studies in the recent literature in spatial computable general equilibrium (SCGE) modelling. The primary objective of this survey is to convey a sense of the scope of SCGE modelling now being undertaken. There have been a number of excellent surveys of studies conducted with computable general equilibrium (CGE) models, which have suggested categorical schemes that might be used to compare models and uses to which they have been put. Since SCGE models are being constructed and simulated for such diverse reasons, however, we do not follow a standard template in discussing the studies surveyed. Instead, we focus on what is distinctive about the studies and what the scholars have accomplished by taking the tacks they have. The chapter concludes with a discussion of new directions in which SCGE modelling might be taken.
