                    『Journal of Applied Regional Science』 Issue 23 pp. 1-23 (2019/06/01)

                    This paper measures the effect of sorting on wage disparity. We extract worker skills by estimating the wage equation using Japanese individual data. We show that the skills of workers in metropolitan areas are 9.68% higher than the skills of workers in nonmetropolitan areas. In the counterfactual situation in which there is no migrati…

Using distance-based methods, we obtain the following results. First, Japanese knowledge-creating establishments defined by patenting experience are significantly localized at the 5% level, with a localization …

                            The expanding Empire and spatial distribution of economic activity: the case of Japan's colonization of Korea during the prewar period

                            Nakajima, Kentaro : Tetsuji Okazaki
                            『The Economic History Review』 Vol.71 No.2 pp. 593-616 (2017/06/09)

                            In 1910, Japan annexed Korea and integrated it into the Empire of Japan. According to its policy of assimilating colonies, the Japanese government intended to remove the tariffs between Japan and Korea, an aim which had almost been realized by 1923. The removal of the tariff barrier was supposed to improve market access between Japan a…

                                  Xu, Hangtian : Kentaro Nakajima
                                  『Resources Policy』 Vol.50 pp. 160-168 (2016/12/01)

                                  In response to high mortality rates and low productivity in coal mining, China began regulating coal mines in the 1990s, reshaping its coal economy. We investigate the relationship between coal mine regulation and economic growth. Using the difference-in-difference approach to compare the pre- and post-regulation periods as well as reg…

                                    We develop a competitive search model involving multiple regions, geographically mobile workers, and moving costs. Equilibrium mobility patterns are analyzed and characterized, and the results indicate that shocks to a particular region, such as a productivity shock, can propagate to other regions through workers' mobility. Moreover, e…
