Better data is becoming available on economic activity within countries, often much exceeding the available information of economic activity across countries. This creates new research opportunities for testing economic theory, analyzing market structures and the sources of market segmentation, and making predictions of how economic shocks propagate across space. The aim of this conference is to bring together researchers from urban economics, industrial organization, health economics, and international trade to study production and trade within and across countries.
