The occurrence of the outbreaks of bovine trichophytosis and numbers of people affected by this disease in the Czech Socialist Republic were studied in 1966 to 1977. The effectiveness of the preventive and therapeutic measures against the causative agents of the disease is proved by a marked drop of the number of outbreaks in all months in the mentioned(More)
This article introduces a social planner version of a model central to the New Economic Geography for explicitly answering whether the symmetric equilibrium outcome of the decentralized market economy is socially desirable. We find that savings incentives are too weak, resulting in an inefficiently low capital stock and therefore an inadequate number of(More)
We analyze the effects of factor taxes in a standard 2x2x2 model of international trade with internationally immobile factors, modified to allow for involuntary unemployment. Factor taxes that increase employment are shown to be potentially welfare reducing in the open economy due to an induced negative terms of trade effect a case that we label ”induced(More)
Transmissible gastroenteritis of swine (TGE) was studied in detail for three years; over-all survey on epizootologic and commercial properties of this disease was thus obtained. Occurrence of TGE, its seasonal character, indices of morbidity, mortality and lethality were evaluated statistically. The morbidity rate dropped in 1973 from 68% to 41% in(More)
This paper shows that the standard continuous-time core-periphery model – the foundation of the New Economic Geography – is not robust: simply reformulating it in discrete time has profound implications. The continuous-time model can only exhibit stationary long-term behavior, and high transport costs are perceived as stabilizing. In contrast, the(More)
This paper examines the long-term behavior of a discrete-time Footloose Capital model, where capitalists, who are themselves immobile between regions, move their physical capital between regions in response to economic incentives. The spatial location of industry can exhibit cycles of any periodicity or behave chaotically. Long-term behavior is highly(More)
This paper provides a non-technical overview of NEG models dealing with policy issues. Considered policy measures include alternative categories of public expenditure, international tax competition, unilateral actions of protection/liberalisation, and trade agreements. The implications of public intervention in two-region NEG models are discussed by(More)
Modern macroeconomic models with a Keynesian flavor usually involve nominal rigidities in wages and commodity prices. A typical model is static and combines wage bargaining in the labor markets and monopolistic competition in the commodity markets. As central policy implication follows that deregulating labor and/or commodity markets increases equilibrium(More)
