Course Description: This course provides a theoretical and empirical way of thinking about how geographical distance and space have an impact on economic activities. Spatial economics is a combined field of international economics and economic geography.

This theoretical framework explains the mechanism behind inter-industry trade and intra-industry trade, an impact of trade cost reduction such as trade liberalization and development of transportation infrastructure, geographical pattern of economic activities, and agglomeration effect on economic growth. The course introduces new literature and examines evidence-based policy based on theoretical and empirical analysis. Assessment: exam, papers, class participation.
