Then the analysis should proceed by evaluating the corresponding Jacobian matrix J (or H), verifying for which parameter combinations the eigenvalues condition is satisfied. Given the complexity of the system and the objectives of this review, we limit ourselves to the exploration of the special case of a 2˚1 economy.

Finally, other authors use the utility function suggested by Pflüger (2004) [Quasilinear logarithmic (QLL) model] in which the upper-tier is quasi linear with a logarithmic component concerning the N manufactured goods; whereas the lowertier is still a CES. In the second class of models, instead, reducing trade costs has the opposite effect with dispersion forces prevailing over agglomeration forces. Here we can distinguish between two subgroups using different analytical structures: (a) that 24 P.
