Technical and locational evolution in a heterogeneous industry
Office of the Provost
This paper uses an evolutionary simulation model of technical and locational adjustment to refine concepts of labor- and output-market segmentation within an industry. The simulation model focuses on differences among establishments arising from different strategic orientations. In particular, there are significant differences in establishments' likelihoods of relocation within a heterogeneous landscape. Empirically testable hypotheses are suggested for subsequent analyses of intraindustry evolution and local impacts.
