Research on Economic Agglomeration Effect of Wuhan Megalopolis
Abstract: This paper systematically describes all kinds of theories in the area of megalopolis and agglomeration,introduces the economic and political process of Wuhan megalopolis since it started. Based on the actual situation of Wuhan megalopolis, this paper constructs a proper spatial economic model and gets some useful micro-based conclusions. After detailed empirical study, this paper proves that the spatial model perfectly fits the process of Wuhan megalopolis, by the facts that all theory conclusions have been supported with sufficient data. The results show that with the establishment of Wuhan megalopolis external industry transferring into Wuhan megalopolis has already happened and the concentration trend is speed up. Meanwhile, economic agglomeration effect is not balanced between the partners, which means core-periphery pattern is likely formed, but the imbalance of welfare is comparably small. Therefore, not only the construction of Wuhan Megalopolis should be actively promoted to obtain Economic Agglomeration and economic growth force, but also regional imbalance needs to be highly noticed and solved well.
