Notes
  • The 2008 Nobel Prize for economics was awarded to Paul Krugman for three papers—Krugman (1979, 1980, 1991). In this paper we illustrate that, indeed, these three papers are closely connected. We present a summary of the papers using a unified framework. Central in the discussion is the so-called home market effect that was already alluded to in Krugman (1979). We evaluate his work and conclude that these three papers changed and improved the way in which economists think about trade and geography. Commerce et Geographie: Paul Krugman et le Prix Nobel 2008 en Economie Resume Dans la present communication, nous illustrons la facon dont ces trois communications sont en rapport etroit.

Au cœur meme de ces discussions se trouve ce que l'on appelle l'effet du marche interieur, deja evoque dans Krugman (1979). Nous evaluons cet ouvrage, en concluant que ces communications ont change et optimise la facon dont les economistes concoivent le commerce et la geographie.
