The book offers practical and theoretical insights in regional externalities. Regional externalities are a specific subset of externalities that can be defined as externalities where space plays a dominant role. This class of externalities can be divided into three categories: (1) externalities related to mobility and transport; (2) external economies of scale and cluster effects, and (3) spatial environmental externalities. The book offers examples of the above mentioned categories. environment externalities mobility regional economics space Table of contents Acknowledgements.- Heijman, W.:Regional Externalities: an Introduction.- Larsen, M.M., Madsen, B., Jensen-Butler, C.: Modelling Transport in an Interregional General Equilibrium Model with Externalities.- Rouwendal, J.: External Effects in Road Traffic: the Pigou-Knight Model and its Extension to Situations With Endegenous Speed Choice and Heterogenous Traffic.- v.
