Abstract

Agglomerative effects in the Russian manufacturing industry are significant and higher on average than in West European countries. Also, there is a marked “agglomeration shadow effect”, that is, firms’ productivity tends to grow in the vicinity of large cities and to decline with distance from an agglomeration centre. With the Russian economic development as it is now, the growth in industrial employment in large cities is a reserve productivity-enhancing tool.
