LABOR MARKETS AND REGIONAL TRANSPORTATION IMPROVEMENTS: THE CASE OF HIGH-SPEED TRAINS. AN INTRODUCTION AND REVIEW

In this paper, labor market issues are reviewed in terms of mobility and policy resulting from transportation improvements. Research on macro level regional adjustment vs. micro level search processes are also reviewed. A spatial interaction approach to assessing changes in regional access and regional industrial mix is outlined. Hypotheses with respect to transportation and labor markets are described. Empirical evidence of the impact of high-speed rail on labor markets and their structure is reviewed. Conclusions are drawn and new research questions and directions are identified.
