One group summary April 4, 2019 I write down here a version of the model with one group, constant elasticities, no trade frictions, no housing, with the notations of Fajegelbaum and Gaubert (2018). The last section shows that the market allocation is generically not efficient. 1 Simple model with draft notations 1.1 Setup Utility u j = A j L γ A j c j congestion if γ A < 0 Free mobility u i = ¯ u Output Y j = Z j L γ P j L 1 - β j productivity: Z j L γ P j , agglomeration externality if γ P > 0 β 0 measures decresing returns in production Total labor supply summationdisplay L i = 1 Define the elasticities: ε i U,L = U iL L i U i = γ A ε i Y,L = Y iL L i Y i = 1 - β + γ P 1

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
