Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Capitalism
  • Macroeconomics
  • Microeconomics

His primary scientific interests are in Economic geography, Economies of agglomeration, Returns to scale, Distribution and Imperfect competition. His Economic geography study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Labor mobility, Hukou system, Interdependence and Urban hierarchy. His study looks at the intersection of Economies of agglomeration and topics like Econometrics with Rank-size distribution and Mathematical economics.

Within one scientific family, Steven Brakman focuses on topics pertaining to Wage under Returns to scale, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Marginal cost and Productivity. Steven Brakman integrates several fields in his works, including Distribution, Empirical evidence and Zipf's law. His study looks at the relationship between Imperfect competition and fields such as Welfare, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems.

His most cited work include:

  • The Strategic Bombing of German Cities during World War II and its Impact on City Growth (249 citations)
  • An Introduction to Geographical Economics (246 citations)
  • An introduction to Geographical Economics: Trade location and growth (169 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary areas of study are Economic geography, International economics, International trade, Economies of agglomeration and Globalization. Steven Brakman works mostly in the field of Economic geography, limiting it down to topics relating to Distribution and, in certain cases, Returns to scale, as a part of the same area of interest. His International economics research focuses on subjects like Foreign direct investment, which are linked to Stylized fact.

His biological study deals with issues like Competition, which deal with fields such as Convergence and Neoclassical economics. His Economies of agglomeration study incorporates themes from Factors of production and Public economics. His Globalization study frequently links to related topics such as Economy.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Economic geography (27.41%)
  • International economics (21.99%)
  • International trade (17.77%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Empirical evidence (7.53%)
  • International trade (17.77%)
  • Productivity (6.33%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Steven Brakman mainly investigates Empirical evidence, International trade, Productivity, Welfare and International economics. His study on Empirical evidence is intertwined with other disciplines of science such as Sample, Labour economics and Globalization. His study on International trade is mostly dedicated to connecting different topics, such as Welfare economics.

His work deals with themes such as Industrial organization and Foreign ownership, which intersect with Productivity. The concepts of his Welfare study are interwoven with issues in Microeconomics, Stylized fact and Economic geography. His study involves Gravity model of trade and Trade agreement, a branch of International economics.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Do trade agreements stimulate international trade differently? Evidence from 296 trade agreements (65 citations)
  • Consequences of Brexit and options for a ‘Global Britain’ (30 citations)
  • A closer look at revealed comparative advantage: Gross‐versus value‐added trade flows (16 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Capitalism
  • Macroeconomics
  • Globalization

His main research concerns Economy, International trade, Political science, Monetary economics and Globalization. His studies deal with areas such as Development economics and Economic reform as well as Economy. His work in International trade is not limited to one particular discipline; it also encompasses International economics.

Many of his research projects under Monetary economics are closely connected to Discount points and European integration with Discount points and European integration, tying the diverse disciplines of science together. Steven Brakman has researched Globalization in several fields, including Tertiary sector of the economy, Value, Liberalization and Consumption. His Free trade research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Economic integration and Commercial policy.
