Essays on New Economic Geography and International Trade
The current thesis is a collection of two essays contributing on the field of New Economic Geography and International Trade. The title of the first essay is "Globalization, Regional Productivity, Taste Bias and Internal Spatial Distribution". The title of the second essay is "Foreign Productivity Improvements and Domestic Welfare Effects". I believe that the current Ph.D. thesis illustrates and sheds light on the role of some fundamental insights for the class of New Economic Geography and International Trade models, in general.
