Research themes

Well-being, economic growth and sustainable development

Brief explanation of research

A real growth of the region may provide both effective economic performance for producers and sufficient well-being for households. While economic performance can be estimated by the gross regional product and other relevant economic indicators, the extent of well-being attainment would be different from these results. Unless whole elements for the real growth of region are properly included in spatial analysis, regional development cannot satisfy actual needs of local households and firms which can be directly relevant to the attractiveness of region. Once the level of attractiveness significantly declines, local population as well as economic activity at that region may not be stable in the long run. To avoid such a vicious circle of the regional development, we explore how attractiveness of region can be measured applying the established notion of externality within the framework of central-place theory and welfare economics. (JSRASI Conference Paper, 2013)
