Keywords in Portuguese
Aglomerações urbanas
Desenvolvimento econômico
Econometria
Abstract in Portuguese
Esta dissertação investiga o impacto da aglomeração sobre o desempenho econômico dos Municípios Brasileiros entre 1970 e 2000. Para tanto, foram estimadas equações de crescimento combinadas com modelos econométricos espaciais. Os resultados indicam que a aglomeração teve efeito positivo sobre o crescimento econômico, sem indícios claros de congestionamento. Além disso, também foram encontrados sinais de externalidades positivas e spillovers de educação vindos de áreas vizinhas. Os resultados reforçam a necessidade de se considerar os efeitos espaciais quando se procura entender o desenvolvimento econômico no Brasil.

Abstract in English
This paper investigates the impact of agglomeration economies on economic performance of Brazilian municipalities between 1970 and 2000. In order to achieve that, we estimate growth equations adopting standard spatial econometric models. The results indicate that agglomeration has positive impacts on economic development without clear indication of congestion effects. Moreover, we also found evidence of positive spatial externalities and educational spillovers coming from neighboring areas. The results reinforce the need for considering spatial effects when aiming to understand the economic development in Brazil.
