The Inherent Complexity of Agglomeration : Essays on the self-organization of urban economies

Wernberg, Joakim LU (2017)
Abstract (Swedish)
Den här avhandlingen kombinerar vetenskapen om komplexa adaptiva system med ekonomiska geografi för att beskriva och undersöka självorganiserande principer och drag i täta urbana ekonomier, särskilt med avseende på flöden av information och kunskap mellan människor som ger upphov till produktivitetsrelaterade externaliteter. Avhandlingen består av en kappa som presenterar det övergripande ramverket samt fyra artiklar som behandlar olika aspekter av urbana interaktioner och den interna distributionen av ekonomisk aktivitet i städer.
Abstract
This doctoral thesis combines complexity science and economic geography in order to explore bottom-up, self-organizing principles within urban economies, in particular in relation to the flow of information and knowledge between people. The thesis consists of a kappa that covers the general theoretical framework and four papers. The papers cover urban scaling and intra-urban scaling analysis, local interactions and informational spillovers , collective information processing, productivity benefits related to city size, diversity and specialization externalities, social capital and urban interactions.
