Recent insights from the reenergized fields of urban economics and economic geography emphasize the importance of spatial interactions and in particular the tremendous power of economic concentration as a key driver of economic growth. The report examines how density, distance, and division partially explain income patterns in the region and considers how policy guided first by a focus on equality of opportunities can foment growth by promoting density, reducing distance, and tackling divisions. It draws on both existing and new research to examine these issues.
