Regional performances are traditionally explained in terms of factor endowments, like physical capital accumulation (exogenous growth models), openness to international trade (export-led growth models) or education and innovation dynamics, (endogenous growth models). These approaches neglect productive interdependence, within or between regions and industries as possible sources of growth. Interdependence may occur in several ways; we have decided to focus on labour flows as the way regions and industries interact.
