Urban systems : understanding links between gobal and local policies.

General Equilibrium Model of the Space-economy (GEMSE)

GEMSE aims at investigating interplays which stem between aggregate and local dimensions of economic activity, which induces populations and firms migration, housing, transportation, transport energy use and associated greenhouse gas emissions. It consists of designing a spatial model based on urban economics (Alonso, 1964; Mills, 1967; Muth, 1969) and the new economic geography (Krugman, 1991) whose economic determinants underpin at each of these two spatial scales the recursive disaggregation of exogenous macroeconomic trends; energy prices, technical progress, national investments in capital, the average national labor force productivity, the total production value and the national employment rate.

Numerical applications of GEMSE on France, US and China urban systems are available online. See the France (e.g. Paris), US (e.g. New York) and Chine (e.g. Beijing) corresponding websites. Those are also accessible from here.
