This is a copy of the presentation I gave at this year's Irish Society of New Economists annual conference in UCD. The paper is co-authored with Robert Butler ( also of the Department of Economics UCC). The paper compares two competing growth models, New Economic Geography (NEG) theory and the Solow growth model. The results suggest that both can explain economic growth. Anyone interested in obtaining a copy of the working paper can contact me or Robbie.
