Example text

In Henderson's formulation agglomeration economies exhibit diminishing returns, which limits the extent to which increases in export production and population allow firms to pay ever higher wages. In Ch. 18: Urban Residential Location 733 addition, transportation costs take an ever increasing share of total output as population and the size of the city increase. The latter results in a city of determinate size. Another extension of the monocentric model introduces variation in bid rent functions across households.

The solution for r(u) is used to determine population and density gradients. Extensions of Mills' model have modified the assumptions describing housing preferences, transportation production functions, and congestion cost relationships. The existence of congestion externalities presents a standard welfare problem which has been analyzed in monocentric models. Congestion represents a divergence between average and marginal costs of commuting to and from different points. Location choices will be non-optimal in the absence of congestion tolls.

3 The planner will seek to redistribute income among households unless the marginal utility of income is everywhere constant. If the marginal utility of income varies with distance to the city center, social welfare could be increased by transferring income from those with low marginal utilities to those with high. Thus, the planner will not accept an equal utility outcome except in the special case where marginal utilities of income are constant for persons located at every distance. Returning to the market equilibrium location patterns described in the previous section, it will generally be true that whereas utility is equal at every distance along the bid rent gradient, the marginal utility of incomes varies with location.
