Abstract

Abstract The paper builds upon earlier work by Simon upon the effects of increased productivity on the ratio of urban to rural population. The approach is based upon the analysis of excess demands rather than comparative statics. This permits a more complete portrayal of the linkages between measures of productivity change and elasticity, and shifts in the division of labor.
