Empirical Investigation of the Relation between Transportation Infrastructure and the Pattern of Production Specialization across the US States

This project intends to evaluate the extent to which integration of domestic producers into the global economy is predetermined by domestic transportation infrastructure. Econometric analysis will be based on a very detailed data set on the composition of state international exports combined with the information on the method of shipment, state’s geographic location, and availability of transportation infrastructure.
