The growth of labour or capital, then, is potentially dependent on input prices, the factor mix, and the presence of particular externalities. After controlling for input growth, the remaining share of output growth can be attributed to productivity growth. Productivity growth arises from technical and organisational change as well as the exploitation of economies of scale or scope. A principal means by which regional productivity growth may occur is through the adoption of more productive techniques from other regions.

3 Economies of specialisation This type of economy refers to the degree to which a city’s output is dominated by a single or a number of closely related sectors. Specialisation, a city-level concept, differs from localisation in that it deals directly with a city’s sectoral composition. The largest ties to factor growth come through its effects on risk. Specialised cities are especially vulnerable to business cycles – particularly on the downside. When a negative shock occurs in a dominant city-industry, these cities do not have the industrial diversity to absorb labour and capital losses in the dominant industry.

Finally, the only other economic variable significantly correlated with output growth is the specialisation measure, which has a negative coefficient. The localisation and urbanisation measures are not significantly correlated with output growth. The output growth equation can be summarized by noting that the traditional factors enter with the expected signs, while those variables associated with geographic production externalities do not demonstrate a strong statistical correlation with output growth.
